After leaving the Special Forces, container truck driver and single father Hùng (Alexandre Nguyen) dedicates his life to raising his six-year-old daughter. But when she gets kidnapped and assaulted, Hùng relies on his martial arts training and combat skills to hunt down the twisted millionaire responsible. His mission of vengeance takes him on a journey deep into the Vietnamese underworld, where he faces off against legions of bloodthirsty gangsters working for one of the world's most dangerous crime syndicates.

From award-winning director Luong Dinh Dung and featuring action sequences by Oh Sea Young (Avengers: Age of Ultron), 578 MAGNUM was selected as Vietnam's 2023 official Oscar entry for Best International Feature.

    "It has more than enough flying fists, a female biker gang of assassins, and hand tools you wouldn't find on the shelves of your neighbourhood Home Depot. "

    "The single most ass-kicking movie that anyone has submitted to the Oscars in a very long time."

    "578 Magnum excels in two critical ways. First, the martial arts are second to none. The hand-to-hand combat is exciting, and every punch and kick moves the narrative forward. Secondly, the film features strong, engaging performances."
