Martial Arts Superstar Jackie Chan heats up the big screen again in his latest action/sci-fi movie, “Bleeding Steel,” which will open in Philippine cinemas starting February 21.
Directed by Leo Zhang, the movie tells the story of Special Agent Lin Dong (Chan) who gets torn between his family and his duty. He gets a phone call from the hospital informing him that his daughter who’s suffering from Leukemia is in critical condition. He rushes to the hospital, but on the way gets another phone call this time from a co-worker, informing him of an immediate and dangerous mission.
Lin’s co-worker informs him that Dr. James, a critical witness to a crime is in danger and needs protection from the police. But before the police can reach him, Dr. James injects himself with a chemical substance stored with a mechanical heart. And when the police arrive to escort him, they were ambushed by unknown men and almost all members of Lin’s team were killed.
Fast forward to 13 years, what happened to Agent Lin Dong, his daughter, and to the mysterious witness Dr. James who might be the key to an advanced but destructive technology?
Bleeding Steel is filled with zesty fights and goofy scenes that are trademarks of a Jackie Chan movie. He also mixes his well-known martial arts moves with new fighting styles that are suitable for a sci-fi action movie.
The film was shot in Taipei, Beijing and Australia and Jackie Chan’s intense fight scene on top of the Sydney Opera House is a definitely a must-see.
Bleeding Steel opens in cinemas nationwide on February 21. Presented by VIVA International Pictures and MVP Entertainment.
