Review in a Nutshell: Despite some misleading American packaging, The Legend 1 & 2 (aka Fong Sai-Yuk 1 & 2, aka The Legend of Fong Sai-Yuk 1 & 2) are a fun mix of comedy, drama, and martial arts mayhem from the earlier 90’s. While it’s nice to see Jet Li in a comedic leading role, Josephine Siao ends up stealing the show as Fong Sai-yuk’s irascible kung fu wielding mother.

FINAL THOUGHT:

Jet Li does indeed have a lovely smile.

Review in a Nutshell: With glimmers of its true potential shining through despite poor editing and a hackneyed script, The Forbidden Kingdom nevertheless manages to squander an enormous amount of talent.  Our whopping 63 minute podcast explains all the reasons why Sean describes this film as a ‘kung fu love letter written by an illiterate’.

Review in a Nutshell:  Return to the 36th Chamber is a kinder, gentler kung fu film that’s low on murder but high on comedy and creative choreography.  Included in this review is a discussion of how to find good martial arts films for fledgling kung fu fans.

This movie contains:

Wirework.

Coconut Head.

BOSS WANG.  BOSS WANG.   BOSS WANG.

No Charge for Awesomeness

Everybody loves kung fu fighting, and Kung Fu Panda is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  Combining humor, heart, and heroism, Kung Fu Panda is a great kung fu movie with a positive message.  Don’t let the advertising fool you; there’s plenty of action, character development, and hilarity to be found here.

Bloodsport, ReDux?

Watch out for pirates, gangsters, and Tibetan monks, because The Quest is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the poster or the movie title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell:  Essentially Bloodsport retold in the 1920s, The Quest is Jean-Claude Van Damme’s directorial debut.  It’s a fun but flawed film which includes Roger Moore, elephants, and boatloads of inadvertent homoerotic subtext.

“Kwantsu, Dudes!”

Wax up your surf boards, because Surf Ninjas is The Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting and his Ernie Reyes Jr fetish.

Review in a Nutshell:  A goofy premise, good action choreography, and jokes that work more often than not make Surf Ninjas a surprisingly entertaining film.  All that and it has Leslie Nielsen getting crushed by an elephant, too.

This movie contains:

Ernie Reyes Jr.

Ernie Reyes Sr.

Cyborg Samurai Leslie Nielsen.
