Sammo Hung Lays Waste In First Shot From THE BODYGUARD
Make no mistake about it: Sammo Hung can still kick your ass. That seems to be the general message delivered by the first image from The Bodyguard, an upcoming big budget feature in which Hung serves as both director and action director while also starring alongside Andy Lau. And how welcome is a return by Andy Lau to this sort of high end production after a few years of generally bland output?
A retired bodyguard (Sammo Hung) settles down in a small town on the Russia-China border. He befriends a young girl whose life is threatened when her father (Andy Lau) falls in with the local crime world. When the girl and her father disappear, the bodyguard sets out on a ruthless trail to take down the mob and rescue the girl.
