In their second film compilation following their 'Boogeymen:The Killer Compilation' series, FlixMix takes you into the history of action movies from Hollywood to Hong Kong cinema that spans a 20-year period. This one features action scenes from 16 action-packed movies featuring action gurus, Jet Li, Michelle Yeoh, Chow Yun-Fat, Jackie Chan, Jean-Claude Van Damme and many more. The DVD edition features a audio commentary from legendary Hong Kong filmmaker, Tsui Hark (Once Upon A Time In China, Zu Warriors, Double Team) and an additional commentary by stuntman/martial arts actor, James Lew that adds a excellent perspective to the action scenes. An instructional featurette by James Lew that will teach viewers the principals of throwing and receiving punches & kicks on film as well as choreographing your own fights. Different profiles of the actors, on-screen trivias of each movie will keep action fans entertained. Written by
Most of the fights here were good. However: Liam Neeson's fight--huh? Fight Club--why? Drunken Master--not really, just Jackie getting kicked repeatedly by the guy who never puts his right foot down Jet Li's two--not enough of either
Some they should have considered: Lethal Weapon--Riggs vs Mr. Joshua (great street fight) Who Am I?--Jackie Chan vs the two guys on the skyscraper roof Predator--US commandos vs the Columbians (serious bullet spraying and explosions) Men of War--Dolph Lungren vs the English/Aussie prick Return of the Dragon--Bruce Lee vs Chuck Norris
Just my personal opinion.
