If you liked Rope A Dope short film by Eric Jacobus you don’t want to miss this new martial arts movie that pays tribute to Hong Kong action cinema of 80s.
Dennis Ruel presents Unlucky Stars, an exciting action packed ride with outstanding fighting choreography and comedy scenes in Jackie Chan‘s style. So if you love martial arts and film fights, then you’ll surely appreciate Unlucky Stars.
You should know Dennis Ruel by Barrio Brawler movie (if haven’t seen it you missing out) which received a limited theatrical release and now available on Netflix, and Rope A Dope short where he played a bad guy.
Unlucky Stars started as a fundraising project on IndieGoGo and raised only 22% of its goal but it did not stop guys from filming the project of their dreams.
“For us, Unlucky Stars is much more than a feature length Martial Arts demonstration – We want to bring back the feeling that the 1980’s Golden Era Of Hong Kong Action Cinema gave us – An era that inspired us as martial artists, actors and filmmakers. An era that ultimately made us want to continue the tradition by writing our own chapter in hopes of revitalizing the fun that the genre used to be known for.”
Synopsis: When Peru’s Biggest Action Film Star and Jordan’s newest rising talent find themselves pursued by a notorious Bookie, a couple of private investigators are forced to choose between their job and their conscience.
