Rise of the Legend


Dir. Corey Yuen. 2016, 131 mins. Digital projection. In Mandarin with English subtitles. With Sammo Hung, Eddie Peng, Yuyan, Wang Luodan, Jing Boran, Angelababy. Rise of the Legend tackles the origin story of the legendary kung fu folk hero Wong Fei-hung, subject of over 100 film and television series including the Once Upon a Time in China cycle. Fei, a young martial artist with extraordinary power, returns to Guangzhou, China, the town where his father was murdered, to face off against a ruthless crime boss and bring justice back to the people. “This movie’s Guangzhou is a marvel: sprawling, detailed, abounding in narrow alleys and vivid street scenes.” –The New York Times.
