Johnnie To’s ultra-stylish homage to the great Japanese director Akira Kurosawa

Eureka Entertainment to release the acclaimed masterpiece THROW DOWN; Johnnie To’s gloriously inventive and empathetic action drama; presented on Blu-ray from a 4K restoration in its UK debut as part of The Masters of Cinema Series from 18 May 2020. The initial print run of 2000 copies to feature a Limited Edition O-card Slipcase.

In this visually arresting action drama from acclaimed director Johnnie To (Mad Detective, Election), legendary Judo fighter Szeto Bo (Louis Koo; Flash Point, The Legend of Zu) unexpectedly gave up the sport and now lives the life of an alcoholic gambler who runs a pub. However, cocky Judo newcomer Tony (Aaron Kwok) wants to challenge him, while old foe Kong (Tony Leung Ka Fai, Ashes of Time) demands Szeto to finish the match that never took place, Soon Szeto’s pub becomes the ultimate arena where the greatest Judo fighters challenge one another.

Filled with brutal, no-holds-barred Judo fight scenes, Throw Down is director To’s ultra-stylish homage to the great Japanese director Akira Kurosawa, and is an emotional tale of one man’s determination to rediscover himself and win at all costs. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Throw Down in its UK debut from a 4K restoration.
