Product Overview

In the vein of Bloodsport and Kickboxer, a naive athlete joins an underground prizefighting circuit to earn a little extra money to support his girlfriend. Surrounded by greed and ruthlessness, he is hardened into a brutal fighting machine, defeating opponent after opponent in a series of vicious battles, until he reaches the ultimate showdown where both his life and his soul hang in the balance. Fatal Contact stars Jacky Wu Jing (Kill Zone, Zu Warriors).

ReviewSource The Illuminated Lantern
Review The fights are really what this film is all about, and they are quite excellent, and appear plausible even when Wu Jing is throwing down some impossible moves. This is thanks to fight choreography from Chung Chi-Li, who has worked on several Jackie Chan movies in the past as part of his stunt team. And Herman Yau took the cinematographer credit on this one, making the behind the scenes crew at least as strong as the cast...Comedian Ronald Cheung seems an unlikely choice to play a kung-fu sifu, but he keeps the humor strictly character-driven, avoids the cheap laughs, and generally pulls it off with a smile...At one point Kong says he "wants to be like Jet Li", and its a funny line coming from Wu Jing because that's pretty much what he is positioned as in Hong Kong movies. And here he takes on the usual Jet Li role of innocent, naive, kung-fu guy. Combined with underground fighting, and one can't help but compare the film to Jet Li's Danny The Dog (aka Unleashed). Jet Li's movie is more violent, yet also carries a greater emotional center. Wu Jing's movie feels a bit more like a didactic lesson. Unlike the fights, which we believe, his character becomes rather implausible.
