Watch Four Of Germany's Finest Action Actors Battle It Out Anime-Style In TRIBAL TIES!
From L to R: Felix Fukuyoshi Ruwwe, Max Huang and Lorenz Hideyoshi Ruwwe
The folks over at the German martial arts filmmaking troupe, Young Masters, have unveiled their latest short action film, Tribal Ties. Filmed in 2012, the team brought actors Max Huang and Eskindir Tesfay on board to help manifest what they wanted to portray, envisioning an anime-stylized kung fu action project inspired by the visionary style seen in Dragon Ball Z and Naruto. The official teaser was aired in July prior to the shortfilm's premiere as one of this year's main entries at the Action On Film Festival.
Tribal Ties is directed by Felix Fukuyoshi Ruwwe and Lorenz Hideyoshi Ruwwe, who directed, shot, wrote, choreographed, directed the project.

EXCLUSIVE: In the months since its evolution, the highly anticipated action thriller, Triple Threat (formely Makeshift Squad) has been a bookmark for many an Asian cinema fan looking to see just how this particular "Asian-Expendables" kind of movie this will bring about. The prospects have been good, too, and notably in the wake of its casting additions including headliners Tiger Chen (Man Of Tai Chi), Tony Jaa (Furious Seven) and Iko Uwais (Headshot), and particularly with 87eleven's own Chad Stahelski (John Wick: Chapter 2) behind the action scenes.
I think it's safe to say you know your movie sucks when you not only screw the rights holders whose name and content you base your unsanctioned film on, but when said rights holders join the chorus of critics panning your movie from literally every angle of the internet. That is the level of achievement you have reached if your name is George Nolfi and you've directed a film called Birth Of The Dragon, long hyped to be a hopefully legendary homage to Bruce Lee, the late founder of Jeet Kune Do and patriarch of American martial arts movie fandom.
John Stockwell's Kickboxer: Vengeance is now available wherever movies are sold in the U.S. and Canada with other screenings pending. It's a film that otherwise garners caution for fans as a rebooted fanfare that nonetheless has actor and martial artist Alain Moussi leading the action vehicle next to the star of its original iteration, actor Jean-Claude Van Damme.
