redoubtable Jackie Chan stars as
a Special Forces Agent charged with
protecting a witness to a sensitive high-
tech conspiracy but finds his life and
those of his colleagues in danger from
a mysterious armoured and heavily
armed private militia in the electrifying
and hugely amusing Bleeding Steel... MIXING
HUMOUR WITH DRAMA in his own inimitable way, Jackie Chan explodes onto the screen
as Special Forces Agent Lin Dong, who is driving frantically through heavy traffic
to get to the hospital following an emergency call to tell him his sick daughter's
condition has deteriorated badly and her life is hanging in the balance.
A second urgent call, from Lin Dong's colleague Susan (Erica Xia-Hou), informs
him that their Witness Protection has been compromised and they have lost touch
with the key witness in a terrifying high-tech conspiracy that included the
brutal killing of a high-profile arms dealer and a scientific team working in
a laboratory that was wiped out.
A funny, explosive
and impressive thriller
that has the superb
Jackie Chans wit and
all over it...
on the mysterious and cold-blooded Andre (Callan Mulvey) and his sinister armoured
militia, Lin Dong faces danger at every turn while investigating the conspiracy
that could well pose a threat to national security.
Fighting against all the odds, more deaths and injuries follow as the seemingly
bulletproof Andre proves to be a difficult enemy to stop, even surviving Lin
Dong's attempt to run him over and leaving Lin seriously hurt before Andre escapes.
Lin Dong becomes involved again when, thirteen years later in Sydney, an epic
Sci-Fi novel, Bleeding Steel, written by Rick Rogers (Damien Garvey),
is about to be published, with Hollywood seeking film rights. There are disturbing
parallels to past events included in the book and when Rick Rogers is killed
by an unknown assailant in an apparent robbery gone wrong, there appears to
be a connection to the secrets Lin Dong had been attempting to uncover.
CCTV shows a pink-haired prostitute going to Rogers' apartment, followed by
a strange woman in black (Tess Haubrich), who also enters the apartment, demanding
to know where the author got the information that appears in the book.
Student Nancy (Nanan Ou-Yang) is rescued by Lin Dong from the unwanted attentions
of a group of young men and is then followed by young Leeson (Show Lo), who
insists upon protecting her.
Haunted by unsettling dreams and unsure of whom she really is, Nancy has limited
memories of her past and consults a witch (Gillian Jones), who is assisted by
a cheeky Dwarf (Sammy the Dwarf).
Gradually Lin Dong pieces together the truth behind the conspiracy and surprising
links; and once again puts his life on the line to try to track down an arch-criminal
whose malice could have dire consequences.
If you enjoyed Ghost In The Shell and Blade Runner, Bleeding
Steel should be your type of movie. A funny, explosive and impressive thriller
that has the superb Jackie Chan's wit and heroics written all over it.
