OK documentary, but a frustrating omission....
19 December 2008 | by See all my reviews

....it does not tell you which movie each short clip is coming from! Would it be so difficult to have a title card at the start of each clip, just like those they have for the names of each person who appears on the screen? Sure, all the titles scroll by at the closing credits, but I doubt if even the most hardened martial arts fans would be able to match each title to the right clip. The other problem with "Top Fighter" is a problem common to many of these "compilation" documentaries - the compiled scenes (here, the fight scenes) lose some of their impact when they're taken out of their film's context. Other than that, this documentary does cover a lot of ground, and a wide variety of stars, from big names like Jet Li and Jackie Chan (it was made in 1995, so no references to their Hollywood success) to lesser-known on-screen fighters like Leung Kar Yan and Tan Tao Liang (who is now a martial arts teacher), and there are also some revealing interview bits. (**1/2)
