Dragon movie scene

Donnie Yen lets his fists do the talking in Dragon.

The 2011 Chinese action-drama film Dragon stars martial arts stalwart Donnie Yen (Blade of Kings, Ip Man), Takeshi Kaneshiro (Red Cliff) and Wei Tang (Lust, Caution).

Directed by Peter Chan, the movie revolves around Liu Jin-xi (Yen), a village craftsman whose quiet life is irrevocably shattered by the arrival of two notorious gangsters in the local general store. When Liu single-handedly saves the shopkeeper’s life, he comes under investigation by detective Xu Bai-jiu (Kaneshiro). Convinced that Liu’s martial arts mastery belies a hidden history of training by one of the region’s vicious clans, Xu doggedly pursues the shy hero—and draws the attention of China’s criminal underworld in the process.

Presented in Mandarin with English subtitles, the Blu-ray and DVD of the R-rated film contain a making-of featurette with Donnie Yen and the the “Lost in Jianghu” music video.
