Ken Zheng starring in Insight.
American cinema needs more martial arts action stars. Ken Zheng hopes to be following those footsteps in the action film Insight.
In the spirit of Jean-Claude Van Damme and Steven Segal movies, Insight delivers an action-packed punch in nearly every scene.
The film stars Ken Zheng, Madeline Zima, Tony Todd, Keith David, Sean Patrick Flanery, and John Savage. Livi Zheng directed the film.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Jian (Ken Zheng) is a counter-terrorism agent who blends his skills as a martial artist and clairvoyant to bring the world’s most nefarious individuals to justice. This lone wolf is forced to make an unexpected detour to Los Angeles upon receipt of the devastating news of a cover-up surrounding his brother’s alleged suicide. With the reluctant help of LAPD detectives, Abby (Madeline Zima), Carl (Tony Todd), and Captain Duke (Keith David), the unlikely group becomes involved in the investigation. Jian and Abby fight against a high-tech criminal (Sean Patrick Flanery) looking to exploit the brothers’ gifts in his quest for power.
