High-kicking historical fun with a masked Donnie Yen
Action Rod Lott
Your first sign that "Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen" is
not a mass-audience crowd-pleaser is that most moviegoers — even those
who thrive on action — would ask, "Who the hell is Chen Zhen?"
Thriller Rod Lott
Since the 2005 French thriller "13 Tzameti" was pretty good on its own,
why bother to remake it? I have a theory: Sad to say, most Americans
won't willingly watch movies that are in black and white, or have
subtitles, or don't have famous faces they recognize. And they sure as
hell won't watch movies that fall into all three categories of
"liabilities," as "13 Tzameti" does.
