100 Great Kung Fu Movies – Part 4 (39-21)

When it comes to making features like this one, i love the idea of coming up with my own personal “100 Great Kung Fu Movies” of all time. It is tough choosing just 100 because you know there are many more great Kung Fu movies that are not on the list.

I have decided that to make the list, a movie must have a few hand to hand moments during fight scenes in the movies chosen. If for example its mainly sword play with one fight scene hand to hand it won’t make the list. Its old school “style” Kung Fu movies, not modern day settings.

I understand everyone will have their own personal favorites and some may not agree with my list and that’s fine because it’s nice to have different opinions on this genre which keeps it fresh and alive when having good debates.

Anyway, thank you

"7 Samurai," "Vengeance" Remakes Heat Up?

Contemporary Hollywood remakes of Park chan-wook’s "Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance" and Akira Kuroswa's cinematic classic "Seven Samurai" are both gaining steam.

Silver Reel and Lotus Entertainment are teaming with di Bonaventura Pictures and Cj Entertainment to bring the new take on 'Vengeance' to the screen.

Brian Tucker ("Broken City") was attached as scribe some time ago, while Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian are producing.

Meanwhile, Harvey Weinstein has reportedly "had a conversation" with actor Donnie Yen and director and martial arts choreography legend Yuen Wo Ping about the "Seven Samurai" remake in development at TWC.

‘Judgement of an Assassin’ boasts good action but is guilty of a wonky script

Judgement of an Assassin

Written by Ni Kuang

Directed by Sun Chung

Hong Kong, 1977

Vengeance, lust for power, bruised egos, noble desire to remain true to one’s better judgement, none of these carry any meaning in when people are the subject of a trial. In the court of law, justice is blind, or should be, and as such anyone who circumvented it will receive due punishment. There are, however, many creative ways to corrupt the courts themselves, thus rendering attempts at shedding light on the all important truth moot. That is when vengeance and lust for power truly carry their weight against all odds. Sun Chung directs a large scale cast of performers in Judgement of an Assassin, a rather epic legal drama and martial arts hybrid where the fighting, both verbal and physical, happens inside and outside the courts.

When they least expect it, the Golden Axe clan,

Kill Bill: The five manners of fighting in Tarantino’s kung fu opus

If Tarantino’s films of the 1990s announced the writer-director’s as a phenom for writing formidably snappy dialogue that enhanced characterization, his films of the 00s, while continuing to demonstrate the aforementioned writing prowess, suggest that he is equally adept at staging and filming wonderful action scenes, be they brawls, gun fights or contests of martial arts skills. Death Proof and Django Unchained have their share of impressive set pieces representing unique visions of what, in the case of the former, a cinematic car chase can be like, and, in the case of the latter, what a cinematic gun fight shoot out can be like. In essence, pretty darn sweet.

In both cases, even though Tarantino and his crack team definitely put their own spin on such action set pieces, the ingenuity that went into both was inspired by movies which made names for themselves in the annals of film history.

Chang Cheh (張徹): The Legendary Director

Chang Chen is one of the best directors in Kung Fu cinema, known as the main man behind many Shaw Brothers classics, Chang Chen always brings blood and guts as well as having a great story line and great characters in his movies.

Some of my favorite movies of he’s are, Vengeance, Boxer From Shantung, Five Venom’s, Shaolin Martial Arts plus many more. He always brought great depth within most of his characters unless he just went all out and wanted a very bloody movie filled with fights. John Woo was also a big fan of Chang’s and also learnt a lot from him working on certain movies. He gave us raw power in terms of the leading males in his movies and with Lau Kar Leung choreographing many of the fight scenes, you know your in for a real treat.

Fung Hak On – One Of The Greatest Villains Ever.

Over the years having watched many kung fu movies, one person as stood out above the rest as my favorite villain, his name is Fung Hak On.

His presence on screen was fantastic, not only a great fighter and villain, but he is also a very good actor and could show lots of emotion with even one single look (Most look’s ended with someone getting killed though).

Birth-date : 18/9/1949

At the start of his career, Fung started off more as a stuntman and also having brief appearances in movies such as Vengeance, Heroic Ones, Water Margin plus many others. A few years later, the director he was working with at the time Chang Cheh, also had an assistant working with him, going by the name of John Woo. John Woo was just learning the process back then, but Fung was glad to work with Woo on his first ever directorial movie The Young dragons.
