Jet Li’s “Badges of Fury” to Open June 20
Jet Li (李連杰) new movie Badges of Fury <不二神探> is slated to be released in China on June 28, 2013. Unlike Jet’s recent movies, Badges of Fury is an action comedy thriller. This lighthearted movie sees a breakthrough in Jet Li’s more solemn acting style as he plays a sharp-tongued and witty police officer.
This film is directed by Wang Ziming (王子鳴) and produced by Po Chuchui (崔寶珠). After Ocean Heaven <海洋天堂> and The Sorcerer and The White Snake <白蛇傳說>, this is the third collaboration between Jet Li and Wen Zhang (文章).
The plot sets around 2 police detectives, Jet Li’s Huang Feihong, a veteran inspector and his buddy, Wen Zhang’s Wang Buer, a young detective. They are both well known in the police department as Wang Bu Er is impetuous and reckless while Huang Feihong is timid, sarcastic but kind-hearted. Young maverick Wang Buer always land the two of them in hot water.
Audiences will continue to see Jet Li flexing his action skills while Wen Zhang is the comedian in this movie, who is playful and funny and even puts on a pair of Mickey sunglasses and wears a Scottish kilt.
Also in the cast are Cecilia Liu (劉詩詩), Michelle Chen (陳妍希), and Liu Yan (柳岩). The three female casts add glamour to the movie with each character vastly different from one another. Cecilia Liu portrays a damsel in distress but in reality she is not as weak as she appears to be. Michelle Chen is the capable and aggressive policem madam who directs Jet Li and Wen Zhang in solving their case, while Liu Yan is the sexy and beautiful sister of Cecilia Liu.
There will also be more than twenty famous celebrities appearing in this movie as guest stars, including Collin Chou (鄒兆龍), Tong Dawei (佟大為), Michael Tse (謝天華), Raymond Lam (林峰), Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎), Wu Jing (吳京).
With the lethal combination of action and comedy and the sparkling chemistry between the co-stars, Badges of Fury is slated for success.
