ROBIN-B-HOOD available to buy on DVD and Blu-ray from 24th May 2010


Described as “genuinely funny” (Movie Exclusive) and featuring “some of the very best stunt work [Jackie] Chan has done in years” (Twitch), Robin-B-Hood sees Hong Kong action superstar Jackie Chan (The Karate Kid; Little Big Soldier; Shinjuku Incident) taking on the roles of co-writer, action director and leading man in a lively and entertaining caper concerning three crooks who are quite literally left holding the baby.
Directed by Benny Chan (Divergence; New Police Story) and co-starring Louis Koo (Flash Point; Triangle), Charlene Choi (Storm Warriors; Kung Fu Dunk; Twins Mission) and veteran Hong Kong comic Michael Hui, the film come to DVD (two discs) and Blu-ray in May 2010 as an Ultimate Edition release featuring a vast array of special features making it a ‘must-have’ for Jackie Chan fans.
Jackie stars as a lithe, acrobatic burglar and skilled safe cracker willing to take on any challenge, no matter how perilous, so long as the rewards are sufficient to finance his gambling addiction. However, his relatively uncomplicated life is quickly turned upside down when he and his partners in crime, Landlord (Hui) and Octopus (Koo), accept a mysterious kidnapping assignment from an eccentric underworld tycoon. Their target unexpectedly turns out to be a cute baby who instantly steals their hearts and tranforms the hardened criminals into matronly protectors of their fragile but troublesome charge. What appears to be a simple kidnapping deal takes a deadly turn, however, when the time comes to hand over the prize to the client and it becomes apparent that the baby may be in more danger than first anticipated. Discovering their consciences, the trio decides the baby’s safety is worth more than their biggest ever payday to date and soon they’re caught up in the fight of their lives as they take on specialist police units, mob enforcers and, worst of all, dirty nappies!
Loaded with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments and breathtaking fight sequences and stunt set-pieces, Jackie Chan and the director of ‘New Police Story’ deliver a stunning action showcase that ranks alongside the very best of Chan’s previous action-comedy offerings.
