Donnie Yen Rumbles in Kung Fu Jungle on Oct 30th!

一个人的武林! Chinese title is much better!



Reunites Donnie Yen and Director Teddy Chen, since Bodyguards and Assassins, this movie is Selected to be the Opening Film for the London Film Festival - The reviews are out, with many critics saying that this is Donnie Yen's best movie since Ip Man, and at the level of Sha Po Lang and Flashpoint, the ending fight sequence is said to be more than 10minutes!

And features cameo from many action stars!! (a lot of big names, but those are spoilers)



Found some reviews(with spoilers): KUNG FU JUNGLE (2014) review | Asian Film Strike

Review: KUNG FU JUNGLE Sees Donnie Yen Pay His Respects Then Kick Some Ass | Twitch



Synopsis:

A martial arts instructor from the police force gets imprisoned after killing a man by accident. But when a vicious killer starts targeting martial arts masters, the instructor offers to help the police in return for his freedom.

Watched too many hollywood movies in the past few weeks, time for true asian action.

You are one of the rare few who didn't like it! But i respect your opinion. Perhaps you only like hand to hand comat. The final fight scene involving the pole, was really good, confirm win Hong Kong best action choreography award. And the different styles were just great!

I find this movie better than flashpoint. The fight scenes are quite a lot and definitely better than ice warrior.

Good News, other than having great reviews, Kung Fu Jungle has hit a new box office high! It serves as the highest grossing weekend for Donnie Yen since Legend of the Fist - The Return of Chen Zhen in 2010.
First time an Asian Movie is number 1 in the Box Office this year!

CloverFilms just released this news"狂贺!!甄子丹 《一个人的武林》 再创佳绩!4天直冲82万票房, 是2014年第一部夺周末卖座冠军的亚洲猛片!

Congratulations to Director Teddy Chen, Donnie Yen and his team! KUNGFU JUNGLE is the first Asian film that top the weekend box office chart in Singapore this year! The movie, which was released theatrically islandwide on 30th October, collected a stunning SGD $820,000 over 4 days (30 Oct 2 Nov) taking the number 1 spot at the local box office chart over the weekend!

The impressive weekend performance also puts KUNGFU JUNGLE as Donnie Yens highest grossing weekend box office movie over the past 4 years, beating titles like ICEMAN (2014), SPECIAL ID (2013), THE LOST BLADESMAN (2011), etc.

Thanks everyone for the support! Share this post and influence those who have not watched the movie! Witness another Asian film miracle!
KUNGFU JUNGLE 《一个人的武林》 is now showing island wide in Singapore!"

Watched it, no wow effect. Maintained the usual standard. The villian is the chap from iceman, not very satki, rather is peculiar and eccentric.
