John Woo’s latest action film, Reign of Assassin’s, will be available on DVD and Blu-ray from Madman on the 22nd of June, 2011.
Our favourite Hong Kong actress, Michelle Yeoh (yes, the awesome woman from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), returns in a ‘swords and sandals’ adventure which sees plenty of swordplay, fighting, and assassinations. Yeoh’s character, “Drizzle”, was a prominent member of a deadly gang, the Dark Stone Gang, but chose to leave her life of theft and murder and begin anew. Choosing the name Jing, she becomes a shop-keeper. However, the Dark Stone Gang is searching for her as she alone holds the secret that could allow the gang to control the entire world.
Any film with swords and assassins is bound to pique our interest, and any film starring Michelle Yeoh is pretty much guaranteed to be great. Reign of Assassin’s is available for DVD pre-order here for $29.95, or Blu-ray pre-order here for $39.95.
