Former Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Cung Le, who is slated to face off against Rich Franklin at UFC 148 on July 7 in Las Vegas, returns to home theaters for a new martial arts movie Dragon Eyes, which hits DVD and Blu-Ray on April 9, 2012. This time Le plays opposite Muscles from Brussels Jean-Claude Van Damme and Robocop Peter Weller. All fights were choreographed by Cung Le himself, for stunt coordination was responsible action guru Larnell Stovall, known by martial arts movies such as Undisputed 3, Bunraku and Never Back Down 2.
Plot: St. Jude Square is a neighborhood living in fear as dueling drug gangs and corrupt police terrorize the streets… until hope arrives in Hong (Le), a mysterious stranger who after release from prison decides to take a stand and fight back. Using his unparalleled martial arts skills and calling on the teachings of his ex-cell mate mentor Tiano (Van Damme) Hong begins his savage campaign for justice, taking on the brute force of the gangs and the notorious corrupt police chief Mr V (Weller).
The film boasts a bevy of mixed martial arts fighter cameos including Dan Henderson, Rich Clementi, Gilbert Melendez, Trevor Prangley and more. Even Mr. Robocop himself, Peter Weller, gets in on the action.
