King Of The Streets is the story of Yue Feng, a skilled street fighter who accidentally kills a dude and spends eight years in jail. He gets out, and attempts to puzzle together the pieces of his life, with varied success. Apart from the awesome martial art sequences, all in which Yue Feng excels at what he does and seems near unbeatable, the movie is also philosophical and somewhat dull. Things are never looking too bright from Yue, even though he keeps on fighting, grinding, helping out... is this life? Is this what it all amounts to? Is there a message behind this fateful story?
What makes it all somewhat special however is that Yue Feng is played by Yue Song, both the actor and director of the movie, a guy as skilled with martial arts outside the movie world as he seems to be within it. And yet this movie is thus far the only one he's made. It's a good movie. It doesn't look low budget. The action feels real. The directing easily on par with some of the more well-known martial arts movies out there. So who is this mysterious man? A street fighter like the one he portrays? Is this the story of his life? And if so... is this the end? His one and only cinematic hit? IMDB doesn't have a single review, forum or FAQ entry for this title, and yet it has the full cast list, the cover image and a good rating. The mystery just makes this all the more memorable! Good watch.
