At the beginning of the 20th century, China is in a state of crisis. The country is split into warring factions, the citizens are starving, and recent political reforms have made matters worse, not better. The ruling Qing Dynasty, led by a seven-year-old emperor and his ruthless mother, Empress Dowager Longyu (Joan Chen), is completely out of touch after 250 years of unquestioned power. With ordinary citizens beginning to revolt openly, the Qing Dynasty has created a powerful, modern army (the “New Army”) to quash any rebellion.

On the surface, the five masters are friendly loving neighbours however they are actually very cunning and competitive trying to outdo each other to be the first to locate the map. One day their wealthy landlord reveals that he possesses the map which sparks an explosive chain of events in this once small and ordinary village.

Chasing The Shadows: Trailer zur Martial-Arts Komödie

Die Jungs von KFC Cinema und Wildgrounds haben den ersten Teaser Trailer zu Chasing The Shadows (Zhui Ying) aufgetrieben. Anders als es die ersten bewegten Bilder vermuten lassen, handelt es sich dabei leider um keine reine Wuxia Show, sondern um eine Komödie mit Martial-Arts Einlagen in der Jaycee Chan die Hauptrolle als reisender Kung-Fu Meister übernimmt. Laut Pressemeldungen und Regisseur Francis Ng (eigentlich eher als Schauspieler bekannt) soll der Film eine unterhaltsame Homage an die Klassiker aus den Shaw Studios werden, mal schauen ob das auch so klappt wenn der Film im Sommer in China startet.
