Want to see one of the best clips from a movie that Brian Salisbury called “unstoppably entertaining” in his review from Fantastic Fest last year? Only if you swear an oath of loyalty to Donnie Yen, the martial arts master of his generation. That’s right, I said it. Now swear it.

The clip comes from Well Go USA and Variance Films’ Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen, one of the finest martial arts epics I’ve seen in a long while. It’s part of the opening sequence, in which Chen Zhen (Yen) must save his WWI regiment from the Germans in a high-flying act of heroism. Think Saving Private Ryan, but with a Chinese dude running around killing krauts with a pair of hunting knives. In this rarest of instances, it is far more awesome than it sounds. It’s the best 1:14 you will spend online all day. See for yourself after the jump.

Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen opens April 22 in limited theaters.
