Dirs. James Lew, Robert J. Samuels. 2021, 89 mins. It’s Goodfellas meets Ip Man when a young Chinese nobody (Jay Kwon) sets out to become a Don in the Italian Mafia in the new martial arts / mob comedy from Vision Films, Inc. But tensions are high between the two cultures as they move into each other’s turf and a dirty crime commissioner (Raymond J. Barry) is playing all sides. It turns out that earning respect, finding love, and discovering his identity doesn’t come so easy. He’ll have to fight his way to the top. Turning stereotypes on their heads while delivering lots of action, Made in Chinatown stars everyone’s favorite mafiosos Tony Darrow (Goodfellas), Vincent Pastore (The Sopranos), Chris Caldovino (Boardwalk Empire), Tony Ray Rossi (Donnie Brasco), Paul Borghese (Law & Order: SVU), and legendary kung-fu fighters Lo Meng (Five Venoms) and Chiu Chi Ling (Kung-Fu Hustle), and Tak Wah Eng (Revenge of the Green Dragons). Also starring Shing Ka (The Manchurian Candidate) and Shuya Chang (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 2), and more! Written and produced by Martial Arts Hall of Famer and award-winning writer, Mark V. Wiley.
