Watch 1 Minute, 15 Seconds Of Pure Donnie Yen Ass-Kicking From LEGEND OF THE FIST

Warning: This could be one of the best minutes of action you’ll see this year!

I really loved Legend of the Fist: Return of Chen Zhen when I saw it last year at Fantastic Fest. The movie is bookended by two ludicrously good fight scenes, one of which features Chen Zhen using his martial arts to defeat a WWI German machine gun nest.

You should be warned - it isn’t until the end that Legend of the Fist gets as good as this opening sequence. You have to invest in the story and the characters, which I fully did. This is a real movie, not just brainless chop-sockey. But it is FUCKING AWESOME when it gets to the chop-sockey.
