Up until this year, the most legendary of all the martial arts heroes CHEN ZHEN – a Eastern fictional martial arts master recurring in Eastern culture – had only been played by two actors on the big screen. Bruce Lee in the seminal ‘Fist Of Fury’ and Jet Li in the breakout hit ‘Fist Of Legend’.
This year, the baton will be passed to a new martial arts superstar. A new martial arts master who has already proved his worth in the East, starring in numerous movies and invented the highly revered Triple Kick in his high-octane, jaw-dropping style, Donnie Yen.
