Donnie Yen Kicks HD Ass In The New Cantonese Trailer Re-Release For SPECIAL ID

Donnie Yen lit this week on fire with his latest new Mandarin-language teaser trailer for Special ID. Now there is a second "uncensored" HD trailer online for Hong Kong audiences, and though there really is no noticeable difference between the two versions, there are only a few audio edit changes, including the removal of the sound that plays when actress Tian Jing points her gun at some poor schmuck's junk, in addition to Cantonese audio throughout.
 
Other than that, nothing has been added or removed, footage-wise, just the same montage of Yen-flavored MMA-stylized hard-hitting grit and action that we have all come to know and love throughout his career, along with some "personality" to boot. Only this time, in HD. But while it may be the same trailer, who am I to pass up another write up on this long-awaited gem? Right?

Special ID is directed by Clarence Fok and stars Yen and Jing along with Andy On, Collin Chou, Hanyu Zhang, Qi Daji, Kun Yang and Ken Lo, with action choreography by Yen and his team, along with stunt coordinator Bruce Law. Yen also produced the film with Yong Er and Peter Pau.

The film will be released domestically on October 3, 2013, with a North American date currently pending from Well Go USA.

SYNOPSIS:
Yen takes on the role of Zilong Chen, an undercover police officer deep within the ranks of one of China’s most ruthless underworld gangs. The leader of the gang, Xiong (Collin Chou – JET LI’S FEARLESS, THE FORBIDDEN KINGDOM, THE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS, THE MATRIX RELOADED), has made it his priority to weed out the government infiltrators in his midst. Struggling to keep his family together and his identity concealed, Chen is torn between two worlds.

Upping the stakes, as Chen’s undercover comrades are being dealt with, one by one, Chen fears his days are numbered. Now, he must risk everything to take down the organization and reclaim the life he lost when he took on this perilous assignment. As the action mounts, Chen must do everything he can to protect the SPECIAL IDENTITY he wishes he never had before it’s too late.
