Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! I will begin by stating my #1 kung fu movie of all time is "Fist of Legend".(Jet Li. If you haven't seen this title....Please do, it is a remake of Bruces' classic "Fist of Fury" and it surpassess it...Majorly, and don't question me, it's the best ever.) This is #3 in my top 10..
Yep, it's amazing. I just hope you go get it, for your sake.
Th story is deep, (Revenge is only a fraction of the plot.)and it has very likable characters. Lam Ching Ying is the best in this film. Biao is awsome, but it's all about the Wing Chun master. This exciting form, just about never caught on film,(It's the first time I've seen it besides the fantasy title "Wing Chun" with Michelle Yoeh[Also great]) has juiced me up to try to find a school of Wing Chun. I've always wanted to take up a style, and I've found one. Exhilarating!!
The action direction won an award in China. This choreography can be compared to Yuen Woo Ping's brilliance because it shows just the right angle you need to see at just the right time. The editing is delicious! Slow motion shots, hard hitting realism, and tons of it. Sammo moves like a limber gymnast here, definately in top form. Lam Ching Ying will entertain you with his awe-inspiring technique, while the popcorn flies in your mouth and your eyes bug out at the screen.
Pure action and adventure for any adult!....Wow.
