Product Overview

With Yuen Wo Ping, action director for Kill Bill and The Matrix lending his genius to the stylish eye of Director Stephen Fung, House of Fury packs a crippling Bruce Lee punch with the cool flair of a James Bond mission!

Chinese chiropractor Teddy (Anthony Wong) is a widower struggling to raise his sullen teenage son Nicky (Stephen Fung) and his wild daughter Natalie (Gillian Chung from Twins). Teddy's kids are deeply embarrassed by their Dad's outlandish tales of his glory days. What they don't know is that their father leads a clandestine life protecting retired agents. When an evil nemesis re-appears and kidnaps Teddy to settle an old score, Nicky and Natalie, along with her boyfriend Jason (Daniel Wu), put their martial arts training into action and pummel the assassins that stand in their way.

Review Part family-drama, part action-fantasy Stephen Fung's second project as director excels when concentrating on the latter or a combination of the two. From the stories Siu-Bo tells depicting himself as a fantasy superhero taking on hordes of ninja while employing a variety of wire tricks to the extended action sequences which punctuate the film's latter half the action choreography from Yuen Wo-ping is always exciting and captured well by the director. The genres are also expertly combined when Nicky and Natalie are seen in the home fighting as brother and sister do...The family-drama aspects revolve around the relationship held between Siu-Bo and his children, with Anthony Wong asked to converse on more than one occasion with his character's departed wife via a photograph he cherishes. A real treat in this role Wong is an actor with the dramatic chops to pull this off while these scenes go some way to elaborate on the family's background, but they often come across slightly laboured thanks to musical cues that wouldn't appear out of place in your everyday soap opera...House of Fury was both a genuine surprise and pleasure, offering a simple story that is carried by the sum of its parts with attractive and (mostly) engaging actors delivering a combination of comedy, drama and then stepping things up for the numerous action set-pieces which are delivered in a high-class package by the director.
