ACF 210: The Enforcer due out on DVD

I feel that announcements of upcoming DVD releases is one type of news that fans of Asian films would be interested in. So here's some information about another Dragon Dynasty release. I hope to receive my review copy with enough lead time that I'll be able to put up a review before the February 10th, 2009 release date.

An honest cop goes undercover to infiltrate a hardcore Hong Kong crime syndicate in the Special Collector’s Edition of The Enforcer, arriving on DVD February 10th from Genius Products and The Weinstein Company’s heralded Dragon Dynasty label.

An exciting combination of action-packed crime thriller and family drama, The Enforcer stars action legend Jet Li (Forbidden Kingdom, The Mummy 3: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor) as an undercover Chinese agent sent to Hong Kong to bring down one of the region’s most nefarious criminals. When another officer is taken hostage, his cover begins to unravel, exposing him and those closest to him to grave danger.

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Corey Yuen Kwai (The Transporter, DOA: Dead or Alive) and also starring the late Anita Mui (Heroic Trio, The Executioners, Rumble in the Bronx), The Enforcer is considered one of Li’s best films and picked up a Hong Kong Film Award nomination for Best Action Choreography. Loaded with all-new bonus features, The Enforcer will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.97.

Synopsis:
A Chinese police officer goes undercover in an attempt to bring down a dangerous and highly regarded Hong Kong crime ring. When his cover is blown and his family is put in harm’s way, the stakes become much higher.
