One of UK-based Eureka Entertainment’s more recently-announced titles now comes with a new trailer in Johnnie To’s 2004 action drama, Throw Down. The company is rolling it out on Blu-Ray from a 4K restoration on May 18, 2020, as part of their Masters Of Cinema collection.
In this visually arresting action drama from acclaimed director Johnnie To (MAD DETECTIVE, ELECTION), legendary Judo fighter Szeto Bo (Louis Koo; FLASH POINT, THE LEGEND OF ZU) unexpectedly gave up the sport and now lives the life of an alcoholic gambler who runs a pub. However, cocky Judo newcomer Tony (Aaron Kwok) wants to challenge him, while old foe Kong (Tony Leung Ka Fai, ASHES OF TIME) demands Szeto to finish the match that never took place, Soon Szeto’s pub becomes the ultimate arena where the greatest Judo fighters challenge one another.
Filled with brutal, no-holds-barred Judo fight scenes, THROW DOWN is director To’s ultra-stylish homage to the great Japanese director Akira Kurosawa, and is an emotional tale of one man’s determination to rediscover himself and win at all costs. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present THROW DOWN in its UK debut from a 4K restoration.
