Dragon was one of the biggest martial-arts stars of his day! But his bad temper got him removed abruptly from the final episode of the hit show SEVEN STAR SWORD. Flash-forward to 30 years later and a shady investor gives washed-up director Tiger a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, to direct a reboot of SEVEN STAR SWORD. By pure serendipity, he comes across the man himself! Dragon is game for a comeback, but is also suffering from health issues. As the cameras roll, Dragon still believes he’s a big star and insists on doing all his own stunts. In his first scene, he disregards the script like the old days and slays all the baddies in full character! With Dragon’s mounting demands and unforeseen troubles brewing behind the scenes, will SEVEN STAR SWORD get the concluding ending it richly deserves?
Shaw Brothers legend and real-life kung-fu champion Chen Kuan-Tai (IRON MONKEY, EXECUTIONERS FROM SHAOLIN) shines in a rare role that celebrates action stars of the golden era of the ’70s and ’80s, making it fun, tragic, but full of heart. LEGENDARY IN ACTION! Is a true love letter to the genre, but also to the crazy behind-the-scenes drama that comes with mounting a film, and a poignant reflection on life, inspirational and exhilarating. Think low-budget CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON meets THE PLAYER and VIVA EROTICA. Lead star and co-director Justin Cheung (PROJECT GUTENBERG) also went the Christian Bale route by putting on 50 pounds to play the loser director who aspires to do his dream film with his boyhood idol.

Jang is an ace driver of unmatched sangfroid, but delivering her latest package will mean pushing her vehicular skills to the max, and more!
Boss and Aood reunite when the latter is diagnosed with cancer. Baz Poonpiriya (BAD GENIUS) returns with a stylish, boozy road movie.
An irreverent, subversive, and anti-establishment black comedy, a deeply humane love story, and a true repertory classic.
