Trailer Time: Kung Fu Jungle with Donnie Yen

Donnie Yen is pretty much the top dog when it comes to martial arts films. The dude is in my opinion one of the best martial artists in history. His movies may vary in range of quality, but he continues making them and trying different things. Unlike other martial arts movie stars he actually has a range and a look that can be used in different genres. Here in Kung Fu Jungle which is also known as Kung Fu Killer, puts Yen in an interesting role. The trailer makes it seem as if he's a creepy ass killer himself, while the synopsis unfortunately puts him in a familiar genre trope.

A vicious killer (Wang Baoqiang) is going around Hong Kong killing top martial arts opponents. When convicted killer and Kung Fu expert, Xia (Donnie Yen) hears this, he offers to help the police catch the killer, in return for his freedom. However, the canny and lethal killer eludes them again and again. Although the latter made it quite clear that Xia would be his ultimate challenge, Xia refuses to be drawn into the life and death duel - until the killer threatens the women he loves most.

The film is out this September, here's hoping for a North American release.
