“… a bustling mixture of genre references and colourful characters …”

Described as one part Chinese Western, one part black comedy and one part war movie, the martial arts infused, action-packed Eastern Bandits debuts on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital May 27th from Well Go USA Entertainment. An anti-Japanese resistance fighter during World War II infiltrates a gang of bandits to enlist their help in assassinating a Japanese prince. When the plan goes awry they are ambushed and must escape to save their lives. Eastern Bandits is directed by Yang Shu-peng (The Robbers) and stars Huang Xiaoming (Ip Man 2: Legend of the Grandmaster, The Guillotines), Zhang Yi (Beginning of the Great Revival, Caught in the Web), Zhang Xinyi (Love is Not Blind, Lost on a Journey) and newcomer Ni Jingyang.

Synopsis: Eastern Bandits is the heroic story of rebels with a fortune to gain, and everything to lose. Leader Fang Youwang (Huang Xiaoming), with his compatriots Kuei, San Pao, and Lady Dagger - lead a posse of roving bandits that are fearless, enterprising, and loyal to the death. Their baby-faced masks make them terrifying; their underground lair untraceable. And now, they’re plotting a double-scam - a heroic rescue and a kidnapping mission - that will make them legends…if anyone gets out alive.
