Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen

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?"

The Stool Pigeon

Not your average bird in the Hong Kong coop.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Asian film enthusiasts swear by "The Stool Pigeon," a critically acclaimed Hong Kong hit from last year. While I've now watched Well Go USA's Blu-ray release of it three times now, it strikes me as not spectacular, but certainly a more-than-serviceable exercise in action and suspense.
