ACF 143: Fist of Legend is to come out in a 2-disc DVD package September 9th, 2008!

Wanted to pass on this p.r. info I received about the upcoming release of Fist of Legend, starring Jet Li, in a Two-Disc Ultimate Edition DVD package. It's been awhile since I've seen the film, but I remember it well enough to say that it's great, a true classic.

I'm expecting a review copy and will put up my impression of the actual release as soon as I can. But Dragon Dynasty has been putting out such impeccable product that I'm very confident that this is going to be dynamite also.

From Genius Products and The Weinstein Company, the highly anticipated kung fu tale FIST OF LEGEND debuts as a two-disc Ultimate Edition DVD September 9th under the Dragon Dynasty label.

FIST OF LEGEND is another non-stop action title starring Jet Li (Forbidden Kingdom, The Mummy 3) about a Chinese students’ mission to avenge the murder of his mentor and confidant.

FIST OF LEGEND has been regarded as Li’s best work ever. The film is loosely based on the Bruce Lee martial arts classic The Chinese Connection (aka Fists of Fury) and its legendary final showdown is ranked as the #5 Best Fight Scene Ever by film website Rotten Tomatoes.

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Gordon Chan (The Medallion) with action direction from Yuen Woo-Ping (The Matrix and Kill Bill franchises), the FIST OF LEGEND two-disc set includes extensive behind-the-scenes bonus features

Chen Zhen (Li) returns home to learn that his childhood school has been overtaken by Japanese fighters and that they have killed his beloved master. Zhen goes on a quest to bring the killers to justice in an effort to restore honor to his mentor and school.
