Dante Lam Gets His Fight On With MMA

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
There is something pleasingly efficient about the title of Dante Lam's latest foray into character driven action. 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.

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.
Eddie Peng also stars. With the film now in post production what you see above is the first released still.

    Excited about this. So if MMA is in post-production....what's the latest on Dante Lam's The Demon Within with Nick Cheung and Daniel Wu? Last I heard it was slated for a summer 2013 release.

  • I was wondering that myself. Haven't seen anything new about The Demon Within.
