The Duck Method
14 May 1999 | by (Lisle, IL) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty standard chop socky flick for most of the movie. Actually it's meant to be a spoof of kung fu movies. There's lots of action all the way through and well choreographed fight scenes. But if there's one reason to see this virtually unknown title it's to see the Charles Bronson look-a-like guy as the teacher of all methods of Kung Fu. Towards the end he breaks out the Duck Method. The Duck Method is by far one of the most hilarious scenes you will ever behold no matter how many movies you see.
