Made by award winning filmmaker Johnny Wu, this is a great kick-ass martial arts short.
But... but.... this isn't horror, why give review/promote? Well, it's very simple - a) Johnny gave us some good advice that we're taking to heart. b) He's a friend of ours so of course we'll promote/give reviews on his work. c) He's a huge contributor to the International Horror Hotel where we got our break into indoe horror.
5 people representing different elements (gold, wood, water, fire & earth) meet up with 2 guys. From there it's an all out sit on the edge of your seat because you're gonna see a great 5 on 2 fight with fantastic moves. It's a complete ten minute non-stop martial arts display. After seeing some of the moves, I was left with my jaw on the floor because they were just that good!
The actors went through 4 weeks of training and it shows. The only acting downfall was, you can clearly see exactly when actress Kristina Michelle "Water" pulls her hamstring and had to 'give'. She was a good sport about it - you can see it in the backstage shots at the end.
While everyone loves some high-flying manuevers, I prefer the power show that "Earth" (played by Kieth Colling II) put on. Big & tough with his low center of gavity and strength moves.
This left me begging for more.
Great work Johnny and put out a part 2!
