WWII actioner THE WRATH OF VAJRA coming on March 18th

Well Go USA
The Wrath of Vajra
Directed by Wing-cheong Law
China, 2013, 111 minutes

Well Go USA will be releasing the action-packed, martial arts extravaganza The Wrath Of Vajra on Blu-ray, DVD and digital on March 18th.

Synopsis: Before the West entered World War II, a Japanese death cult called the Temple of Hades is ordered to aid in the spiritual destruction of China. Their method: abduct their enemies' children and train them as killers for the Emperor. Young Vajra was especially gifted, but swears a secret oath of revenge when his brother dies. Now the greatest assassin in the temple, Vajra escapes to China and begins his quest to protect the innocent, and destroy the ones responsible for making him a living weapon.

Xing Yu (aka Shi Yanneng), a martial arts action star and former Shaolin monk, stars as Vajra in his first leading role. The cast also includes Steve Yoo (Man of Tai Chi), Poppin Hyun-Joon (Fly, Daddy, Fly), Jiang Baocheng (Legendary Assassin) and newcomer Ya Mei.

I'm expecting a screener, so look for a review here at AsianCineFest on or before the March 18th release date.
