Rick Yune's martial arts masterpiece The Fifth Commandment has been picked up for U.S. distribution by Freestyle Releasing. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will hit at least 1,000 theaters in March.
In the film, Yune plays an assassin that turns down a job to kill a pop singer because her bodyguard just so happens to be his brother. The two siblings soon find themselves at war with every hired killer in Bangkok.
Freestyle's Susan Jackson stated, "What makes The Fifth Commandment stand out are the fight scenes, which, like Ong-Bak, are the real thing, not staged. Uwe Boll's sales company, Boll AG, screened the film at Cannes, and we were really entertained. As with our release Dragon Wars, we could really see the trailer and 30-second spot."
