Thanks a lot acorns!
Your kind generosity keeps the reviews coming!
Encyclopedic telling of Hong Kong's martial arts film industry, and its influence on popular culture (see Hip-Hop, Parkour, etc.).
This crucial anatomical documentary study of martial arts films comes with agendas in plain view.
You won't find any mention of Sonny Chiba, or any other Japanese martial artists. No Karate; it's right there in the film's title.
Oh the racism.
Still, the movie isn't above doing advertising for a popular video platform you've probably heard of once or twice.
It is action-packed though.
Although "Iron Fists And Kung-Fu Kicks could stand to lose 12 or 15 minutes, it is a really fun and informative movie to watch.
Cheers to past co-host on LA GRANDE BOUFFE (THE BIG FEAST), Grady Hendrix, co-writer with Serge Ou, on "Iron Fists And Kung-Fu Kicks"!
