The high school is in crisis, the students are underperforming and preoccupied with non- academic activities. Mr. Chen, aka Big Brother, a teacher with rather rusty writing skills but armed with the most knowledgeable fists and heart of steel, comes to enlighten and inspire the students with his unconventional teaching methods. Just as the kids are improving their work and enjoying the merits of the educational system, an opportunist entrepreneur creates havoc by sending in a motley gang of fighters to win over the land. Their approach, however, isn’t all that persuasive with Mr. Chen, and he and his beloved class are going to give the unwelcome guests the benefits of a real education.

Mixed martial arts meet high-school intrigue in BIG BROTHER! Do your homework! You won’t want to miss the World Premiere of BIG BROTHER at Fantasia, weeks before its grand Hong Kong opening! Donnie Yen strikes with a scholastic twist and reunites with action director Kenji Tanigaki (RUROUNI KENSHIN, Fantasia 2013), the two having collaborating several times, on astonishing fight scenes from WU XIA (aka DRAGON, Fantasia 2011) to LEGEND OF THE FIST: RETURN OF CHEN ZHEN. The pair once again score the bullseye with jaw-breaking mixed martial arts sequences. Rising writer/director Kam Ka-Wai passes with flying colours here, turning in a truly inspirational and exciting film laced with social undertones that will retain your interest until the final bell. Class dismissed! – King-Wei Chu
