Once Upon a Time in Vietnam


Dir. Dustin Nguyen. 2013, 107 mins. With Dustin Nguyen, Ngo Thanh Van, Phi Thanh Van, Roger Yuan. The first action-fantasy epic ever made in Vietnam, writer/director/martial arts star Dustin Nguyen’s film is a blend of Mad Max; The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly; and classic martial arts action. In a desert populated by motorcycle-riding warrior monks and gangsters, wars wage between small pockets of civilization. Master Dao arrives in a riverside village to fight the violent crime bosses who have taken control, but soon his dark past involving a mysterious beauty catches up with him.
