CLASH

Action

Trinh, a reluctant mercenary, is beholden to a crime lord who promises only to release her kidnapped daughter when she completes a series of missions. On what could be Trinh's final job, she meets and falls for Quan—whose hidden agenda could ruin the only chance she has of seeing her daughter again. Together with a motley crew of ass-kicking outcasts and no-goodniks, Trinh and Quan battle round after round against gangs and mafiosi… graduating each level like the progression of a video game.

Reuniting martial arts gurus Johnny Tri Nguyen and Ngo Thanh Van, Clash takes the action of their 2006 feature The Rebel to the next level. With lightening-fast martial arts, hyperbolic shootouts, an epic soundtrack, and the archetypes you love and love to hate, this cinematic indulgence was the highest grossing Vietnamese film of the past year. If a video game adaptation isn't already in the works, it should be.
