Big Screen Big Apple- Legend of the Fist:The Return of Chen Zhen(2010) Friday at 10:45PM

It's the second weekend of The Film Society of Lincoln Center's Film Comments Select mini-festival(information here). Film three of what I deem to be the most interesting genre films in the series kicks off the weekend with Legend of the Fist:The Return of Chen Zhen(2010).Legend of the Fist stars Donnie Yen as Chen Zhen, the masked Chinese hero made famous by Bruce Lee in Fists of Fury.

IMDB says - "Seven years after the apparent death of Chen Zhen, who was shot after discovering who was responsible for his teacher's death (Huo Yuanjia) in Japanese-occupied Shanghai. A mysterious stranger arrives from overseas and befriends a local mafia boss. That man is a disguised Chen Zhen, who intends to infiltrate the mob when they form an alliance with the Japanese. Disguising himself as a caped fighter by night, Chen intends to take out everyone involved as well as get his hands on an assassination list prepared by the Japanese."

Friday February 25th @ 10:45PM Walter Reade Theater, West 65th Street, between Broadway and Amsterdam Ave, on the upper level, Upper West Side
