The Hong Kong director is, after all, arguably the strongest action director working in the region today, his recent output excelling and finding a loyal audience around the globe in great part precisely because of their efficiency and no-apologies brawniness. So, a fight film from Lam titled simply MMA? Yes, that's enough to capture the attention.That it features his regular leading man - Nick Cheung - is simply an added bonus.
Eddie Peng also stars. With the film now in post production what you see above is the first released still.FAI , once a world champion in boxing, escapes to Macau from the loan sharks and unexpectedly encounters QI , a young chap who is determined to win a boxing match. FAI becomes QI's mentor and rediscovers his passion to fight not only in the ring but for his life and the cares.
