Sleeping Dogs (2012) - Welcome to Hong Kong, a vibrant neon city teeming with life, whose exotic locations and busy streets hide one of the most powerful and dangerous criminal. Video-game is focused on Wei Shen, an undercover cop trying to take down the Triads from the inside out. You'll have to prove yourself worthy as you fight your way up the organization, taking part in brutal criminal activities without blowing your cover. Torn between your loyalty to the badge and a criminal code of honor, you will risk everything as the lines between truth, loyalty and justice become permanently blurred. It is reminescent of early Shaw Bros classics and heroic bloodshed genre of Hong Kong cinema.
Acting is not that impressive, but the fight sequences are really well choreographed with pretty amazing stunts! It's impressive how every table seen was broken in this film! If only Hollywood would more often listen to the fans... The 8-minute film was created by Clinton Jones known to YouTube fans as pwnisher. Interesting fact is that mr. Jones is colorblind. Clinton has been practicing Shu Nen Do, Kempo, and Shaolin Kung Fu since he was 9 years old. He draws inspiration from the works of Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee. Clinton was raised in Chino Hills, CA until the age of 15. It wasn't until he and his family moved to Atlanta, GA when his interest in making short films kicked in. Clinton used YouTube as a means of inspiration and a way of getting his work seen by the world. He mainly focused on making Visual Effects related short films. In June of 2011, Clinton moved to Los Angeles, CA, and is now focusing on writing, directing, and visual effects work. EMC Monkeys did fight choreography for Sleeping Dogs!
Directed by Clinton Jones.
