Summary: This one actually brought a tear to my eye
An awesome classic from the best fight choreographer in the business. It starts off like its going to be a very boring hatred upon Japanese film. But don't leave your seats. Phillip Ko opens up strong with fast complex forms. Then you find yourself trying to find the seat in the back of you without your eyes leaving the screen. Here's where it starts. Fantastic training, with lot of speedy complex choreography. Leung Kar is a bit slower than the other actors and it shows. Not to take anything away from him, he does look slick and smooth doing it. And he is the main character. Kurata here is better than you'll see him anywhere. A tough log thats nearly unbeatable. He plays the teacher and the Japanese that Leung Kar will fight in the end. Good story, thats suppose to be documented. Be well advised that this movie has a sad ending. The ending of this movie still gets me, no matter how much times I see it. Definitely one of my faves.
