Summary
Offers an in-depth look at martial arts films, particularly Hong Kong's wu xia film legacy and its influence on global cinema. From its roots in Beijing Opera to Quentin Tarantino's tribute Kill Bill, Vol. 2, this film presents the development of the genre, insight into the techniques, weaponry and well-known stars of Hong Kong martial arts action. Beginning with Hong Kong cinema's first martial-arts hero, Wong Fei Hung to the balletic choreography of Chang Che, through the "one-punch" impact of Bruce Lee and the evolution of kung-fu comedy as epitomized by Jackie Chan. The Hong Kong technique of editing-in-camera is demonstrated in a multi-screen sequence, and there are numerous clips from the genre's classic films
