ACF 151: Vietnamese action hit "The Rebel" to be released on DVD

Genius Products and The Weinstein Company have announced that the Vietnamese blockbuster hit, The Rebel, will be coming out on DVD September 30th. The Dragon Dynasty title will be a 2-disc Ultimate Edition release.

The Rebel is the highest grossing Vietnamese film to date. Set in the1920s during the long period of French colonization, the film depicts the emergence of rebel forces attempting to disrupt the foreigners control of their homeland. In response,the French employ elite Vietnamese agents to destroy the rebels.

I expect to get a review screener prior to the release date. In the meanwhile here's some info about the DVD packaging:
