Are you Ready for ‘Beyond Redemption’?

We were contacted by director Bruce Fontaine about his new movie Beyond Redemption which is being hailed as Canada’s first ever Asian styled action genre film.

There will be an Indiegogo campaign to finance final production costs but for now the film is nearly complete.

Bruce Fontaine is a Canadian born Vancouverite who got his start in the Film Industry via Hong Kong. Armed with his martial arts skills, Bruce worked as an action actor for HK Action film icons like Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung, Tsui Hark, Corey Yuen and many more.

 

 

Returning to Canada in 1996, Bruce expanded his experience into acting, stunts, stunt coordinating, and eventually directing and producing.

His extensive background in martial arts coupled with his many years in the Hong Kong & North American film industries bring a level of skill, energy and excitement to ‘Beyond Redemption’ never before seen in a Canadian Production.

The movie stars Brian Ho, Osric Chau, Linna Huynh, Eddy Ko, Tony Towe, Don Lew, Vicky Huang, Darren E. Scott, Samuel Patrick Chu, Peter Chao, The Chengman and Leenda Dong.

SYNOPSIS: After successfully passing an initiation test to join the upper ranks of the Ching Tau Gang, undercover cop Billy Tong is brought in on a plan for a home invasion against a wealthy Chinese businessman that will give Billy the evidence he needs to bring down the gang and its ruthless leader, Big Brother Yuan. As plans are proceeding, Billy learns that his ex-wife is pregnant and begins questioning his career choices. Although Billy realizes the need to put things right and prepare for his new family, his checkered past as a police officer complicates his decision to simply be reassigned. Captain MacKay, Billy’s Superior Officer, strikes a deal with Billy that involves completing the assignment, getting the evidence they need on Yuan, and then having him reassigned AND promote him, and reluctantly Billy agrees. During the home invasion, the gang learns that their real target is a major Triad Dragon Head, Xi Long, and takes his daughter Tiffany hostage. Although Billy believes they are kidnapping Xi Long’s daughter simply for ransom, the reasons run much deeper. Xi Long is negotiating a major deal with a Middle Eastern arms dealer, something Big Brother Yuan’s is targeting for himself. After an exchange is arranged, Billy is told that Big Brother Yuan wants to execute Tiffany in front of Xi Long drawing a line in the sand that Billy is not willing to cross. Billy hides the girl and finds himself taking on all sides in an effort to do what he knows to be right in an amazing battle to the finish!
