For our return after our hiatus from podcasting, we are taking on Donnie Yen – Takeshi Kaneshiro’ Draong (Wu Xia) just released in the UK! Part Martial Arts western, Part a re-imagining of Cronenberg’s A History Of Violence.
Here is a short Synopsis:
Liu Jin-xi (Yen) is a village craftsman whose quiet life is irrevocably shattered by the arrival of two notorious gangsters in the local general store. When Liu single-handedly saves the shopkeeper’s life, he comes under investigation by detective Xu Bai-jiu (Kaneshiro). Convinced that Liu’s martial arts mastery belies a hidden history of training by one of the region’s vicious clans, Xu doggedly pursues the shy hero—and draws the attention of China’s criminal underworld in the process.
