San Francisco, CA (January 7, 2015) – Award-winning martial arts indie film, FIST 2 FIST 2: WEAPON OF CHOICE, kicks into high gear on January 13th with its DVD/Digital release by Anderson Media, Inc.
FIST 2 FIST 2: WEAPON OF CHOICE, (a sequel by name only to 2011′s FIST 2 FIST), follows retired assassin Jack Lee (Kang) who is forced to use his skills once again in order to rescue his “daughter” (Kelly Lou Dennis) from his former boss, the notorious gangster Banducci (Douglas Olsson). With a little help from a rogue cop (Katherine Celio), Jack becomes a one-man killing squad determined to get his daughter back by any means necessary.
From martial arts Master Jino Kang, who stars, co-directs, writes and produces, the 100-minute action-thriller earned critical and industry attention after winning the coveted ‘Action Film of the Year’ award and receiving nominations for ‘Best Fight Choreography’ and ‘Breakout Action Star’ at the 2014 Action on Film Festival (AOFFest).
The film is also receiving rave reviews from genre experts, with City On Fire stating: “If you’re willing to take a break from all the mundane action movies playing in theaters, look no further than Jino Kang’s latest revenge thriller, Weapon of Choice”; and The Action Elite declares: “excellent fight scenes and a badass hero.”
Kang is excited with the overwhelmingly positive reception of the film, adding “Fist 2 Fist 2: Weapon of Choice’ features world-class martial arts action, a compelling story, a dash of romance, an amazing hero (and two heroines!) and a despicable villain or two (or three, or four...). The audience will have an entertaining action ride, from beginning to end.”
Kang, the son of Hapkido Grand Master, Myung S. Kang, emigrated with his family from South Korea to San Francisco during his teen years. He quickly adapted and followed in traditions of his father, opening his first Korean Martial Arts school in the 1980’s. Today, he holds a 7th Degree Black Belt in Hapkido and a Black Belt in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, Kyokoshin-Kai Karate and Tae Kwon do. In 2009, Kang had the honor of being inducted into the Master’s Hall of Fame.
Kang’s passion for filmmaking also began at a young age, which took him to the College of Marin where he elevated his skills and appreciation for the craft. He went on to star-in, direct and produce his first feature film, BLADE WARRIOR, in the 90’s and FIST 2 FIST (aka HAND 2 HAND), which earned numerous festival awards and critical acclaim before releasing in 2011.
FIST 2 FIST 2: WEAPON OF CHOICE is available on DVD/Digital release available on Amazon, iTunes, Google, Vudu and XBox beginning January 13, 2015.
