'Tai Chi Hero' Blu-ray Dated and Detailed

Posted Mon May 6, 2013 at 06:00 AM PDT by

The steampunk martial arts sequel to 'Tai Chi Zero' will hit Blu-ray in July.

In an early announcement to retailers, Well Go USA is preparing 'Tai Chi Hero' for Blu-ray on July 2.

Lu Chan (Jayden Yuan) is still trying to find his place in Chen Village, the legendary town where everyone is a martial arts master…and Chen-style Tai Chi is forbidden to outsiders. But since he helped save the town from a frightening steam-powered machine, Yuniang (Angelababy), beautiful daughter of Grandmaster Chen (Tony Leung Ka-Fai), agrees to marry Lu Chan and bring him into the family. It’s only a formality, though – she is the teacher, and he is the student – and that suits Lu Chan just fine, as the mutant horn on his head gives him incredible kung-fu power, but leaves him dumber each time, and closer to death.

The second in a trilogy from the creators of 'Ip Man' and 'Detective Dee,' and featuring action directed by the legendary Sammo Hung, 'Tai Chi Hero' is a full-on, steampunk-infused, video game-influenced kung fu throwdown that will knock you out of your seat.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video and a Mandarin DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include a Behind-the-Scenes Featurette.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
