Premier mundial

Following the death of his kung fu master, Wu leaves the city and gets a job as a bodyguard of the richest girl in town. He will need to use his martial arts abilities to face an army of villains.

Protagonist, director, screenwriter and adventurer of every sequence, Yue Song is on fire from beginning to end. This is an all-out action movie, a kung-fu movie in iridescent mode that authorizes one to call its creator in front of and behind the cameras the new Jackie Chan (before it’s too late: stay for the end credits). A film steeped in cinephilia that processes its influences –Titanic, James Bond, Kill Bill and melodrama at the most superficial and hyperbolic– at a demented pace but without ever losing clarity, that laughs at every convention by turning it up to 11 (the parody sequence at the beach turns The Naked Gun into a film by Claude Sautet), and displays a devotion for movement. Eyes and souls accustomed to action at the movies are about to experience a new beginning. JPF
