Na sreću ovo nije remake kutnog Hongkongoškog hit filma A Better Tomorrow redatelja Johna Wooa, iako je spomenuti naslov već dobio remake 2010. u obliku Korejskoga filma A Better Tomorrow. Ovaj A Better Tomorrow znan još i pod naslovom Fighting je kineski redatelja Yu Junhaoa.
O čemu se točno radi u ovom filmu je čak pomalo teško objasniti Fighting djelomično izgleda kao ratni film, djelomično kao borilački, te dijelomično kao (dječji) fantasy! A ni službeni sinopsis ne objašnjava mnogo bolje o čemu je riječ iako je poprilično opširan. Zapravo, sinopsis čini film još čudnijim nego traileri. Ono što se može potvrditi je to da se radnja vrti oko mladića imenom Jason i borca koji se zove “Lone Wolf” a koji se nađu u ringu nekog borilačkog turnira.
U glavnim ulogama se pojavljuju Peter Ho, Yi Lu, Wei Yi, Wai Lam, Yong Hou, te Yvonne Yung Hung. A jednu od uloga je odigrao i pokojni glumac Ma Wu kojemu je ovo bila zadnja uloga u karijeri.
Kineska premjera filma Fighting će se održati 21. ožujka 2014.
Abandoned when he was a child, young GAO Ruofei was a very gifted boy. Twelve years ago he was picked up from the street into a home by Mr GAO who had recently celebrated his sixtieth birthday. Mr GAO took good care of him, but Ruofei never called him “father”.
In a car accident, Ruofei lost his amazing running power.
Deep inside Ruofei always thought his teacher Chen looked like a “butterfly goddess”. She encouraged him to join the family sport events of the school, but RuoFei strongly refused. Later on, he stole his teacher’s butterfly brooch but Mr Gao found out what he did so Ruofei ran away from home with the butterfly brooch and went to the place where he had been abandoned as a child praying that he could one day find his true father.
Then a miracle happened: Ruofei found himself travelling into the past during a national game.
Ruofei was strangely obsessed by an athlete named “Lone Wolf”, who had a very special charisma.
Lone Wolf’s dream was to become a pilot. During the game, Lone Wolf met an American guy named Jason whose family was very wealthy. Jason was a vigorous man who was determined to win this martial arts tournament.
Lone Wolf and Jason became the main focus of the entire game and a lot of people were betting on the outcome of their upcoming fight.
Finally, it was time for the final battle, the duel started, two different temperaments and two different backgrounds but yet the fighters understood each other, equal in strength; each had its own qualities and merits, making the duel very suspenseful.
Lone Wolf and Jason were once enemies (rivals) and now appreciated each other.
Who would win the final battle and became the real hero?
