This Friday sees the long awaited debut of the new martial arts action-comedy The Paper Tigers from Well Go USA. The film follows three friends who aren’t as young as they used to be as they reunite to seek revenge for the murder of their master. Older now, the three warriors must find it within themselves and realize that age is just a number to avenge their master. The movie is loaded with incredible martial arts action, laugh out loud comedy and genuine heart.

In this exclusive interview with yours truly, stars Ron Yuan, Alain Uy and Mykel Shannon Jenkins stop by The Action Fix Podcast and chat about the new movie and what it took to make it. Check out the full interview below on The Action Fix Podcast!

Writer/Director:

Tran Quoc Bao

 

Cast: 

Alain Uy (True Detective), Ron Yuan (Mulan), Mykel Shannon Jenkins (Undisputed III), Matthew Page (“Enter the Dojo” – Master Ken), Andy Le (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings), Yuji Okumoto (“Cobra Kai” & Karate Kid II)

Synopsis:

As teenagers, kung fu disciples Danny (Alain Uy), Hing (Ron Yuan) and Jim (Mykel Shannon Jenkins) were inseparable. Fast forward 25 years, and each has grown into a washed-up middle-aged man seemingly one kick away from pulling a hamstring—and not at all preoccupied with thoughts of martial arts or childhood best friends. But when their old master is murdered, the trio reunites, soon learning that avenging their sifu will require conquering old grudges (and a dangerous hitman still armed with ample knee cartilage) if they are to honorably defend his legacy.

Run Time:

108 minutes

A big thanks goes out to Ron, Alain and Mykel for taking the time out to chat for an amazing interview and the fine folks at Well Go USA for making it happen!

The Paper Tigers hits theaters, Digital and VOD this Friday, May 7th!
