I have seen my share of Japanese, Chinese and even Thai action films but I have never seen a Vietnamese action film. They know how to kick some major ass. This movie was 97 minutes of non-stop action and fighting. The fight scenes were SO well done and shot perfectly. I actually found myself getting nervous watching the action in the film since it was so constant. The duo of Johnny Tri Nguyen and Veronica Ngo are perfect together and they completely steal the screen as the ass kicking action duo.

The story follows Trinh (Veronica Ngo) codename Phoenix, who is working for crime boss Hac Long (Hoang Phuc Nguyen) in order for him to the release of her daughter. She teams up with several mercenaries including Quan aka Tiger (Johnny Tri Nguyen) to complete the missions required. The two must come together to defeat Hac Long and sent them both free.

The extras on the film are good and definitely worth a watch. The first is called “In Conversation: Johnny & Veronica”, which was cool to watch because I really didn’t know much about this duo before this film. “Cast of Characters” is a showcase of the great character in this film. “Anatomy of a Fight” was easily my favorite feature due to intensity of the action scenes. Lastly there is a Music Video and Original Trailer. This is film is a must for anyone that like martial arts films
