Watch The Bloody Trailer For Previously-Blocked Vietnamese Action Film THE RACE

Trung Rwo, Writer
If you read about the case of Cho Lon, you'll know The Race. It's another violent film that was initially blocked and was asked to edit some scenes like Cho Lon was, but it wasn't banned. The crew of The Race quietly edited in the shadows, gently following orders from the Censorship Board until they were granted a release date. 

Today the official trailer for The Race was released, which shows how violent it is. Damn, I did not see that coming. This is Nguyen Khac Huy's directorial debut, and I think this guy is pretty promising.

The Race describes the breathtaking journey of the protagonist named Loc (Pham Anh Khoa), a former track athlete, now become a truck driver. He was pushed into a deadly race to save the lives of his father and sister from a gangster boss (Nhan Phuc Vinh).. He doesn't know that death has come to the doorway.

Produced by Blue Productions, The Race is scheduled for a wide release in Vietnam on July 26.

    I think it may be more of a case of the villains getting away with their crimes. That seems to be the biggest problem. The cops need to get involved and good triumphs in the end.

    Thanks mom.

  • Assuming tht the Vietnamese system restrictions are similar to China's, Justin is probably 100% correct. This is an explicit requirement of SARFT in China. Criminals always have to pay for their crimes.

    I'm not sure if I'm getting desensitized to violence but I didn't really see anything crazy or leading me to believe this will be a graphic movie...lot of running around, probably why it's called the race. (Granted there is a guy for a second hacking away with a machete). Not too impressed
