THE RAID And THE AVENGING FIST Make The Cut For Well Go USA's Latest Of Re-Releases!

Well Go USA is simultaneously releasing two Asian classics this October to DVD. I've only seen one of these and its Andrew Lau and Corey Yuen's The Avenging Fist, which does make a dodgy, but notable effort in pushing the envelope for visuals. With this, I'll be looking forward to the reinstallation of Tsui Hark and Ching Siu-Tung's The Raid film of yesteryear as well. We can never have enough of these, I guess.

Read Tuesday's announcement and check out the classic trailers for both until official trailers arrive!
