New Behind the Scenes Look at Donnie Yen’s Kung Fu Jungle

I won’t be putting together a “Best of 2014” list until I’ve seen this movie or indeed until the end of 2014 but Donnie Yen looks to be kicking ass in style in Kung Fu Jungle.

We have a behind the scenes look at the upcoming Kung Fu Jungle which will be getting its world premiere at the 58th BFI London Film Festival.The screening will take place on Sunday 12 October 6.30pm at the Empire Leicester Square Cinema.

SYNOPSIS: A vicious killer Feng is going around Hong Kong killing tip martial arts exponent, leaving a secret weapon called the Moonshadow as his calling card. When convicted killer and kung fu expert, Xia hears of this, he offers to help the police catch the killer, in return for his freedom. With Xia’s help, the police realize from the chronological order of the victims that the killer is targeting his victims, all the top masters in their martial arts style, following a martial code of training.
When Xia also disappears after a close encounter with Feng, they suspect the worst: that the two are accomplices and Feng was the bait to help spring Xia from jail. But Xia has actually gone back to his home in Foshan to find out more about the mysterious calling card. While doing so, he discovers the killer’s identity and his motivation: the true philosophy behind martial arts was to kill opponents who were weaker than him. Steadfastly, Xia refuses to be drawn into a fight with Feng – until the killer threatens the woman he loves most. Only then does he realize that he would have to go against the martial code in order to uphold it.

Kung-Fu Jungle is set for release October 31st.
