Decent documentary on martial-arts movies
7 November 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Not much to say about this, other than it seems to be an attempt to fit as many names, and video samples as possible into a less than two hour documentary, and we do get a lot of names. From the obvious (Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Jean Claude Van Damme) to some of the lesser-known stars.

The basic format is to focus on one star at a time, talk about them for a bit, and then show a sample of them performing with a voice over. There's a short interview with Jackie Chan, and it is pretty cool, but the best bits are the ones about some of the lesser-known stars who deserve more attention. I enjoyed the segment about Jimmy Wang Yu (star of the One-Armed Boxer movies), and how the narrator tells about how it "wasn't unusual" to hear about Wang Yu actually getting into large fights off-screen on the streets. There's a bit about perpetual bad guy, Bolo Yeung, but not enough, and the same goes for Gordon Liu (who recently had two roles in 'Kill Bill').

There isn't much to this documentary, it really is an excuse to show a bunch of video clips from old kung-fu movies, but I'm not complaining.

6/10
