WELL GO USA BRINGS ANDREW LAU'S MARTIAL ARTS FANTASY TO BLU-RAY DISC ON OCTOBER 8TH!
When I was reading about this movie, I kept saying to myself... "Who is Andrew Lau? Do they mean Andy Lau?! Has he gone through the same career metamorphosis as Lawrence (formerly Larry) Fishburne?!" Sadly no. Still, Andrew Lau is an accomplished Director and Cinematographer, so his 2018 film should at the very least, look phenomenal! And I personally am down for watching this - I mean, where else will you see martial arts bounty hunters chasing after a gremlin / baby Yeti in ancient China?!
Synopsis: Director Andrew Lau (THE GUILLOTINES, the INFERNAL AFFAIRS TRILOGY) employs lavish special effects for the epic story of Ocean (Koo), an animal trainer in the Ming Dynasty, who releases a gentle, gremlin-like ball of fur he names Lucky into the world after he witnesses its mistreatment by Crane, an evil eunuch. This infuriates Crane, who immediately puts a huge bounty on both Ocean and Lucky's heads.
From all corners of China, bounty hunters with the most diverse backgrounds and masters of the martial arts sign up for the hunt. What they are unaware of though, is that Lucky is harmless -- as long as he's happy … KUNG FU MONSTER also stars Zhou Dongyu (THE THOUSAND FACES OF DUNJIA), Haden Kuo (TINY TIMES trilogy), Cheney Chen (THE GREAT WALL), and Bao Bei'er (ZHONG KUI: SNOW GIRL AND THE DARK CRYSTAL).
