Cine Asia Brings SHAOLIN To UK Blu-ray/DVD 12th September

, Contributing Writer
Our friends at Cine Asia in the UK are bringing one of the most action packed kung-fu films in recent years to Blu-ray and DVD this September 12th.  Benny Chan's Shaolin makes it's UK debut in just a few weeks, and to promote this release, Cine Asia have come up with a really outstanding trailer.  It isn't something that every company does, but Cine Asia's trailers for their home video releases are really great, and I wish more companies would go this route. 

Shaolin is a pretty damned entertaining film that I was able to catch at AFFD a few weeks back.  There is some solid acting from Andy Lau, Nicolas Tse, and Wu Jing, as well as a nice extended cameo from Jackie Chan that loosens the mood for a few minutes in a good way.  The wire work is extensive and the horses take a beating, but I really enjoyed this one and can't wait to visit it again.  Here are the details from Cine Asia:
Experience the incomparable martial arts of Shaolin in this blockbuster motion picture event from legendary producer, Jackie Chan.

China's last imperial Dynasty has fallen and a ruthless warlord (Andy Lau, House of the Flying Daggers) amasses a vast fortune through the violent subjugation of his people. Faced with a brutal betrayal, he runs for his life, seeking redemption in the fabled Shaolin Temple. When his enemies discover his location, he must stand with his new brothers and fight his life's greatest battle...

With breathtaking action from the martial arts director of The Transporter 1&2 and an all-star cast of Kung Fu superstars, Shaolin sets a new benchmark for Asian Action Cinema!
As usual, Cine Asia is coming through with a TON of extras on this set, including a world exclusive Shaolin Wushu in Action featurette on the Blu-ray edition.  I anticipate a great set!
