Seems like this is a week for “assassins”! Earlier in the week we had news that Victor Vu’s martial art epic 'Sword of the Assassin' has just hit the U.S, now followed close behind with word that NGUYEN Quang Dun’s The Lady Assassin will come to DVD in the UK 10th March 2014....via Terracotta Films.
Feisty women with dark secrets, evil outlaws, corrupt officials and a healthy dose of martial arts action come together to help create the biggest ever box office hit in Vietnam. Harking back to the golden era of the Shaw Brothers martial arts films from Hong Kong, NGUYEN Quang Dung offers slick direction of his beautiful female cast, making great use of cutting edge technology to ramp up the action set pieces. Lush!
Synopsis: A sexy, action packed martial-arts fantasy set in a traveller’s tavern whose owner, with the help of her team of lethal waitresses, routinely slaughter the corrupt government officials & businessmen who visit. When an innocent young woman (TANG Thanh Ha), whose family has been killed by an evil general, arrives at the seaside tavern, they train her to become a skilled assassin so that she can take bloody revenge for her family.
