Kill-Fist is a Cantonese action-thriller film that was initially released in 2019. It documents a man’s desperate attempts to hold on to what little he has of his crumbling life. The movie has a brilliant cast consisting of Sunny Pang, Koe Yeet, Mike Chuah, and Alan Yun. Kill-Fist is written and directed by the talented James Lee, one of the pioneers of the Malaysian digital cinema movement. Sunny Pang, who is an accomplished martial artist, plays the main character. Kill-Fist is Sunny’s second project with James Lee after ‘Call Me If You Need Me’.
The plot of the film follows the life of a middle-aged man, Zhang, who is forced to join a wrestling ring to keep his head above water. The helplessness coupled with the violence and savagery of an underground fighting game makes one think of David Fincher’s Fight Club.
