Clash [aka Bay Rong] (2009) is a Vietnamese martial arts/action film directed by Le Thanh Son. Starring actor/stuntman Johnny Tri Nguyen and actress/singer/model Ngo Thanh Van (aka Veronica Ngo). Nguyen and Ngo previously starred in the 2007 action film The Rebel [aka Dong Mau Anh Hung] with Dustin Nguyen of Fox TV’s 21 Jump Street (1987-90).
Stars of The Rebel Johnny Tri Nguyen and Veronica Ngo are powerful on-screen as mercenaries with the same goal but different motives. When Trinh’s (Veronica Ngo) daughter is kidnapped, she’s forced to recover a stolen hard drive with codes to Vietnam’s first satellite in order to save her. The only way to accomplish the top-secret task is to enlist the expertise of several other specialists, including Quan (Johnny Tri Nguyen), a mysterious man with whom she becomes romantically involved. But with her daughter’s life on the line, whom can she really trust?
Rated R. 97 minutes. Watch the trailer here …
My thoughts… Clash is fast-paced martial arts and gunplay action at its Vietnamese finest! Johnny Tri Nguyen is a perfect Asian action hero but Veronica Ngo is this film’s true star! She is bad-ass and so adorable with that graduated bob!
