A legendary solider is frozen in a war-stricken past and reawakened in present time to face his ultimate nemesis. I’ve never heard of this premise before….have you?
The Iceman is a martial arts flick from Hong Kong that is actually a remake of a more beloved 1989 martial arts film called The Iceman Cometh (see it’s not just Hollywood that has to churn out remakes/reboots).
The Iceman stars Hong Kong action icon Donnie Yen as the warrior who was put on ice. The fight scenes are so elaborate, impossible, and cartoonish…and I LOVE IT.
Lets just recap/discuss some of the awesome moments from this trailer.
First this midair fist bump.
Then the death by flying pencils scene.
And last but not least probably the best scene in the trailer (and my favorite). The moment where the Iceman lays the smack down on a jabroni in a horse-head mask.
The Iceman begins streaming on Netflix TODAY (Thursday, September 18th). I will be watching for sure and we will definitely be covering this in a future podcast review (so keep your eyes peeled).
