Short Film: Sleeping Dogs

I love scouring the Internet for action related films and if you’re a fan of martial arts (isn’t everyone?) then prepare to be blown away. This is essentially an 8 minute fight scene with some truly amazing choreography.

The stunts are performed by EMC Monkeys and yes, it is indeed based on the video game of Sleeping Dogs.

The fights are absolutely fierce and comparisons with The Raid wouldn’t go amiss. It’s very impressive and at only 8 minutes I’m sure it will liven up your Friday. Check out the plot and full short film below.

Plot: Wei Shen (Xin Sareth Yuku) is a cop working deep cover in Hong Kong’s seedy underworld. As part of his dangerous assignment, he’s been working as hired muscle for Tong (Michael Lehr). One evening, the two meet up at Tong’s restaurant hideout. During their meeting, Wei belligerently tenders his resignation, effective immediately. A fight between the two men ensues, and quickly becomes an all-out brawl upon the arrival of Tong’s security force. As Wei fights for his life, Tong makes a hasty retreat. Despite facing insurmountable odds, Wei maintains pursuit. No matter the obstacles, he will have his revenge.
