John Saxon, one of the stars of the legendary martial arts film Enter the Dragon (1973), is the host of this documentary where he makes a review of the genre as several of the actors and actresses who tuned in international stars. Since pioneer Bruce Lee and comic Jackie Chan and women like Angela Mao and Cynthia Rothrock, Saxon explains the variety in the fight styles as the different weapons of the fighters, with a few interviews with them. A fascinating look about the most stamina action movies. Written by Chockys

A good sampler

A pretty cool documentary, featuring a lot of Jackie Chan stuff, not to mention a bunch of other good stuff. Very entertaining for a taste of HK action cinema...It even features some "American" stars fighting in some Hong Kong flicks, which only goes to show how much better the HK choreographers are...
