THE FINAL MASTER Lands A February 19 UK Release On DVD, Blu-Ray And Digital
In 1930’s China, Wing Chun master Chen She (Fan Liao, Assembly, Chinese Zodiac), arrives in Tianjin, a city famous for martial arts. With plans to open his own kung fu school, he must first train a student to defeat eight of the city’s masters, legitimising himself as a teacher. But when he is caught up in local politics and an underworld power struggle, Chen finds himself at odds with dangerous people and will fight to protect what he holds most dear.The film earned multiple nominations in varying categories and was even awarded for Best Choreography at the 33rd Golden Horse Awards in 2015. It's easy to see why that is, with our celebrated director applying his nimble touch to the very techniques and timing therein to the fights. Founded on Liao's suave, alpha male portrayal of an Wing Chun master, the fights are brilliantly paced between fast and fluid movements with tactful handling of the various distinctive weapons involved.
