Entertaining look at the stars of Chinese martial arts films
2 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

Good martial arts movie over view that is a good mix of interviews, narration and fight clips. The film gives some background on the history of martial arts in China before moving on to a loose overview of martial arts on film. Focusing on the various stars that have emerged in the genre over the years the film is arranged approximate (but not complete) order in which an actor rose to prominence. The interviews are with people like Gordon Liu, Jackie Chan, Jim Kelly, Bruce Li and other stars whose clips we see as they talk about making movies. There is also a long segment on Bruce Lee where former students are interviewed. Entertaining, this film compliments nicely some of the better films on the subject Cinema of Vengeance and IFC film on Kung Fu films by fleshing out some of the people only touched on in those documentaries, as well as showing lots of extended film clips of action sequences that are actually worth watching. Worth keeping an eye out for, especially since it can be found in bargain DVD bins for under five bucks.
