Audience Reviews for The Rebel

The Rebel: This is a non-stop action film, An Agent of the Vietnamese government goes deep under cover to infiltrate a group of rebels and find its leader, along the way he of course gets involved with the daughter of the rebels, his co-worker who is also after the leader in like the Asian Terminator, nothing stops this guy. Dana White in the UFC would love to have this guy. The modern day kung fu action is at its height. The stunts would make Jet Li and Jackie Chan loose there breath. A good Asian Film, not sure if there is English Audio, I listen to Vietnamese with English Subtitles, I have to give this one a 4 Star rating

Exhilarating and highly entertaining mix of martial arts and historial drama made in Vietnam. Amazing acrobatic fighting style.

I might be rating this low, but it's still a surprisingly watchable effort considering the budget, it's just that the script and characters motivation are pretty much invisible. That said, the fight sequences are good, the Nguyen bros can kick a lot of ass. They deserve better roles and not being used just as stock villians for Jet Li and Tony Jaa.
