|A well-respected martial arts teacher and a good husband and father, su can's journey begins when his vengeful brother, yuan, returns from war. Seeking revenge from a dark family history, yuan, armed with the five venom fist, destroys su can's family and ultimately his dignity.|
Editor's NoteLegendary martial arts choreographer Yuen Woo Ping returned to the director's chair for the first time in nearly a decade and a half with this lavish historical action-drama. Su Can (Vincent Zhao) is a fearless warrior in the late days of the Quin Dynasty, and after serving his time in the military he's eager to return home to his beautiful wife Yuan Ying (Zhou Xun) and start a family. Six years later, his half-brother Yuang (Andy On) shatters Su Can's idyllic life; filled with hatred for his kin, Yuang has developed a deadly martial arts technique, "The Five Venom Fist," and after using it to vanquish his foes on the battlefield, he's come to get revenge against Su Can. While Su Can can hold his own against Yuang and saves the life of Yuan Ying, Yuang steals their young son and takes him away. After the loss of his son, Su Can falls into a deep depression that grows far worse when his wife dies while searching for their missing child. Su Can becomes a reclusive alcoholic and seems destined to stay that way until he learns his son is alive and needs his help. With the guidance of Lord Wushu (Jay Chou), Su Can trains to win back his fighting skills, mastering "The Drunken Fist," and sets out to rescue his son. Featuring supporting performances from David Carradine, Michelle Yeoh and Gordon Liu, SU QI ER (aka TRUE LEGEND) was an official selection at the 2010 Berlin International Film Festival.

From fierce foreign novelty and geek obsession to influential Tinseltown standard, the carefully choreographed action of the Hong Kong staple has become the cinematic benchmark for almost every onscreen scuffle. In return, Hollywood has influenced the form with its own unique attributes.
