TRIPLE THREAT reviewed; available today as a Blu-ray + DVD combo pack and as DVD only

Well Go USA
Triple Threat
Directed by Jesse V. Johnson
Thailand/China/USA, 2019, 96 minutes

Triple Threat, a terrific actioner directed by Jesse V. Johnson, becomes available today, May 14th, as a Blu-ray + DVD combo pack and as DVD only from Well Go USA. (It's been available on digital platforms since the latter part of April.) The Blu-ray + DVD combo pack features a bonus interview with the cast. My review is based on watching the Blu-ray version.

As the screen capture above indicates, the film asks the question, "Why the fuck is it so hard to kill one little Chinese girl?" The female in question is Xian (actress Celina Jade), a billionaire's daughter who wants to rid a fictitious country of the influence of an immensely powerful criminal syndicate. The triple threat of the film's title consists of Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, and Tiger Chen, who come to protect her from assassins hired by the head of the nefarious organization.

The international cast of martial arts/action stars also includes Scott Adkins, Michael Jai White, Michael Bisping, and Jeeja Yanin,

Disc Specs:
-- Audio
  -- Dolby Digital 5.1

Triple Threat totally delivers terrific action and is a must see for fans of the genre.

AsianCineFest Rating: 3.5 out of 4 stars; very highly recommended.
