Martial arts icon Louis Koo (Kill Zone 2Z Storm) stars in the action-packed Hong Kong wuxia fantasy Kung Fu Monster.

Director by Andrew Lau (The GuillotinesInternal 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 Luck is harmless — as long as he’s happy…

Also starring Zhou Dongyu (The Thousand Faces of Dunjia) and Cheney Chen (The Great Wall),  the Blu-ray of the 2018 Chinese film includes a “Making-of” featurette.
