Some of the stunts in Project A with Jackie Chan were the best I've seen, ever. Supercop's fight scenes were just crazy. I think Jackie really shined in that one. The choreography in Legend of the Drunken Master was perfect. For the old school I go for The Streetfighter with Sonny Chiba. Master Killer was a classic and Enter the Dragon is a personal fave. I wish Bruce had a chance to finish Game of Death himself. I think it would have been the best kung-fu movie ever.
CTHD, Hero, House of the Flying Daggers and other films like these are Wuxia films, so nothing wrong with all the fighting and scenes against the laws of physics and so on. Very big in China these type of genre films. Very magical to watch, visuals.
Ong Bak was good for the action scenes, but didn't like the editing and the rest of the movie was awful, didn't like that.
Who Am I, my brother worked on effects/action scenes in this Chan movie, met Jackie as well.
Love watching Jet Li, Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Michelle Yeoh and most others mentioned already.
I saw his one Kung fu movie when I was a kid about a construction worker who was working in a Shaolin temple (or some kind of temple where they taught Kung fu). I remember them building scaffolding out of bamboo. The guy wanted to learn Kung fu, but they wouldn’t teach him because he didn’t seem to have any skill with it.
However, by watching the students while he worked, he learned and practiced by adapting it to his construction work. He eventually ends up helping the temple out, as I recall, when bandits or some other kind of “bad guys” started attacking the students and teachers there.
Does anyone happen to know the name of this movie? I’ve only been able to see it one time on television and, because it as so long ago, I can’t rember the name of it. Nor have I been able to find a description of a Kung fu movie that matches what I remember. Any help would be appreciated. I’d love to find this movie and buy it if possible. Thank you.
