Overview

As Anti-French rebellion spreads throughout 1920s-era Vietnam and colonialist sanctioned units of Vietnam agents attempt to track down and destroy the rogue cells, a French educated Vietnamese agent finds his loyalty put to the ultimate test in this martial arts action drama starring Johnny Nguyen. Le Van Cuong (Nguyen) was rooting out Vietnamese rebels from French occupied Vietnam when be began to resent the fact that he was spilling the blood of his fellow countrymen. When a high ranking French official is assassinated, Coung is assigned the task of finding and killing the notorious rebel leader responsible for the hit. Cuong's conscience is stirred, however, when he happens across Vo Thanh Thuy - the daughter of the elusive rebel leader. Though Cuong's superior wants to use Thuy as a pawn to get to their intended target, Thuy would rather commit suicide than betray her father. Touched by the Thuy's undying devotion to both her father and her country, Cuong vows to help the girl escape to safety even if it means sacrificing his own life in the process.

    Super awesome dynamite!

    The Rebel is the most popular film in Vietnam's history, and likely will remain so until these crazy kids conjure up another epic! The fine folks in Saigon don't have time for Titanic or Avatar, not when The Rebel shows the heroic struggle of resistance fighters kicking and chopping their way through the French oppressors who persecute them.

    This is definitely the best movie I've ever seen about Vietnamese rebels fighting the French and turncoat Vietnamese in the 1920s! There are a lot of fantastic fight scenes, the scenery is lush, the male lead is a dreamboat and the female lead is a beauty who knows how to deliver flying kicks and multiple elbow smashes.

    Her name is Veronica Ngo, and she has patented the flying scissor kick headlock choke out with spread eagle's wings. You have to see it multiple times to appreciate it. She was also 2nd runner up in the Miss Vietnam pageant. Was Lame Judi Dench 2nd runner up in the Miss Vietnam pageant? Can Meryl Streep deliver a flying scissor legged choke out head lock with spread eagle wing? I doubt it.

    It's no wonder why the people from Hanoi to Haiphong keep streaming into their local multiplex to check out the rock 'em sock 'em freedom fighting action again and again!

    This fine film highlights the early stages of the Vietnamese struggle against foreign invasion and occupation. From the Chinese, to the French, to the Japanese, to the Americans...the Vietnamese took 'em all down and looked chic doin' it!


    Dustin Nguyen from 21 Jump Street is also involved!
