Newcomer Jiang Luxia, a finalist of Jackie Chans: The Disciple reality TV show, plays the lead role as Guangdong wushu coach Nie Yi Yi who is implicated in the case of her employers kidnapping in Hong Kong. She must battle wave after wave of fighters to rescue her employer and his wife. However, unknown to her the fights are being captured on video and broadcast live via a website which serves as an illegal online gambling network.
Legendary Mainland China wushu champion turned Hong Kong actor and action choreographer Xiong Xin-Xin (ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA 3) had been working quietly on his directorial debut, a new action thriller titled COWEB. With the success of the Thai film CHOCOLATE and its star Jeeja Yanin, Xiong hopes to launch female wushu champion Jiang Lu-xia as the next action star with this new film.
In COWEB, Jiang plays Yi-Yi, a young woman who was raised in a family of martial artists and becomes a teacher herself. When her father suddenly passes away, she becomes somewhat depressed until a young man, played by GEN-X COPS Sam Lee, offers her a job as a bodyguard for his boss. When her new boss and her husband are kidnapped, Yi-Yi is determined to find them and gets herself involved with taking on some of the top fighters of the world, not knowing that she is being taped for big gamblers on the Internet. When she learns the truth, she is determined to kick some major butt.
COWEB also features two prominent martial arts experts as three of the fighters that Jiang takes on in the film. The first is Japanese-Chinese-American action star Kane Kosugi, who is coming off a disappointing fight scene opposite Jet Li in WAR. However, in COWEB, Kane has a prominent fight scene as a tae kwon do fighter named Song who takes on Jiang at a gym. The second fighter is German born Mike Moller, who plays a breakdancer fighter and the third is fellow German Wanja Götz, who takes on Jiang in a memorable kitchen fight. These are just a few of many fight scenes in the movie.
Joe Ma Wai-Ho (LOVE UNDERCOVER 1-3) and Chan Shu-Chi produced the film based on a screenplay by Chan Wing-Sun.
Note: To English speaking viewers the sound may appear slightly out of lipsync. It is not. According to review sites, the movie was originally made in Cantonese and subsequently dubbed in Mandarin to reach a wider Chinese audience.
