Reign of Assassins starring Michelle Yeoh will be heading to DVD on 25th February 2013 courtesy of eOne, after it hits UK cinemas this coming Friday (through Ratpack Films).
Co-directed by John Woo, Reign of Assassins stars Yeoh as a ruthless assassin of the Dark Stone gang. After a life of theft and murder, she seeks to atone for her ways and leave the gang forever. Undergoing a drastic procedure to alter her appearance, she changes her name to Jing and starts a new life in the capital. Even with her newfound life as a shopkeeper and a budding romance to Ah-Sheng, the Dark Stone gang is hot on her trail. She alone holds the secret of the mystical Buddhist monk’s remains, which legend says the possessor will gain control of the whole world. The gang will stop at nothing in their pursuit to control this power.
Reign of Assassins really does have it all: wonderfully choreographed action, a moving romance and a plot that will have you gripped from start to finish. Nominated for ten Hong Kong Film Awards (including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Action Choreography, Best Cinematography), this is far and away the classiest and best-choreographed martial arts extravaganza we’ve seen since House Of Flying Daggers.
