Legend Of The Fist: The Return Of Chen Zhen

Synopsis: A continuation of the 1995 television series Fist of Fury, Donnie Yen reprises his role as Chen Zhen, a role made famous by Bruce Lee in "Fist Of Fury" (1972). The film is set seven years after the apparent death of Chen Zhen, who was shot after discovering who was responsible for his teacher's death in Japanese-occupied Shanghai. A mysterious stranger arrives from overseas and befriends a local mafia boss. That man is a disguised Chen Zhen, who intends to infiltrate the mob when they form an alliance with the Japanese. Disguising himself as a caped fighter by night, Chen intends to take out everyone involved as well as get his hands on an assassination list prepared by the Japanese. [Source: Yahoo!

Oh my, when Donnie Yen took off his clothes during the last fighting scene, his body shape is so tone and good that it almost look fake! Girls... take note ya? *hint* Overall speaking, this is a good gong fu show. Donnie Yen depicted Chen Zhen very well in the movie, with his superb reflexes and his fighting skills. There is a few remnant of Ye Wen in the movie, particularly with his 1 vs 20 scene, which of course he won. However, the tone for the movie throughout is quite dark, with many deaths, torture scenes and blood spilling everywhere. For the ending fight, in my opinion, it is quite disappointing. I have expected a classic showdown, with both fighting their guts out to the end, but unexpectedly Donnie end it like 30 seconds? In spite of all these, the movie is still a good catch for the month.

FUGA gathering

It has been a long time since we last met up, more often than not, usually over some one's birthday. This time, the place to have our dinner was decided to be at Rakuzen, Millenia Walk. GZ finally is able to set out some free time from his packed schedule to come and meet us and finally the core FUGA group is complete! We have a nice chat over a wide range of topic (from work related, to who-can-give-the-most-emo-look, to a gay social network on Iphone, and discovering the horror that there are so many of them within a 700m radius) until 11pm in the night before retiring for home. I really wonder how the gay app end up in *ahem Iphone? When shall our next meet up be?

Catching Up

A year has past since we last met, glad that everyone is still doing well, less the usual complaint about jobs =p Met up with YB, YL and one surprise guest TL!!

The Expendables

Synopsis: Fearless Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) is leader of a tight-knit band of men - Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), ex-SAS and skilled with any bladed weapon; Yin Yang (Jet Li), a close combat master; Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), a long-barrel weapons specialist; Toll Road (Randy Couture), a skilled demolitions expert; and Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), a veteran in precision sniping. When the mysterious Church offers Barney a job no one else would take, the team embark on what appears to be a routine mission: overthrow General Gaza (David Zayas), the murderous dictator of the small island country of Vilena. There, Barney and Christmas meet Sandra (Giselle Itie), a local freedom fighter with a dark secret. They also learn the true enemy - rogue ex-CIA operative James Monroe (Eric Roberts) and his henchman Paine (Steve Austin). When things go wrong, Barney and Christmas are forced to leave Sandra for dead. Haunted by this failure, they return to Vilena to finish the job he started. [Source: Yahoo! Singapore Movies]

From the dictionary, the word "expendable" can also be defined as dispensable, and for this meaning, the movie truly lives up to its name. Totally plotless, except for the 6 gentleman above going around shooting mindlessly and throwing blades everywhere killing those trying to stop them, I really cannot describe this movie further. Sometimes, I really wonder how the company of 6 can defeat a small army of 100+ soldiers without suffering any casualty? =p Well, if you want to catch up with some of the actors for old timers sake, please feel free to watch this movie, but be warn, don't get your hopes too high~

One Year Older

Thanks to the 8 people who still remembers and had wish me happy birthday through letters, SMS and Facebook, it really warms my heart. Growing older may sometimes not be a good choice. With it comes heavier responsibility and tougher decisions to make. Of course, you will feel your good old body aging, which is quite a scary thought. How to pass IPPT like that? Oh well, enough of these negative thoughts for the time being....

To save the best for the last, I want to thank *mds* for the wonderful night~ =)
