Michelle Yeoh, wire-fu, and flaming swords

Pretty much everything I can ask for in a movie.

“Reign of Assassins” is a collaboration between relative newcomer Su Chao-Bin and John Woo, the past master of such classic Hong Kong modern day action epics as “The Killer,” “Hard Boiled,” and “A Bullet in the Head,” who recently returned to Hong Kong to make the acclaimed period epic like “Red Cliff” (which I still desperately need to see). Now he’s back with this still-in-production blend of Wuxia madness and romance, also starring Jung Woo-Sung alongside international treasure Michelle Yeoh. This promotional trailer has been making the blog rounds of some of the better sites, and for very good reason. Looks promising, indeed.

It’s a Michelle Yeoh Saturday! part 2

Sorry about the goofy dubbing that mars Ms. Yeoh’s fine acting before the action starts, but if you hold on for a minute, you’ll see why I selected this scene.

This is from “Twin Warriors,” also starring Jet Li and directed by the great fight choreographer Yuen Woo Ping. I’ve never seen this one for some reason, but it sure looks great.
