Movie Reviews

Reviewed by Ricardo-36 5

While rich in material, footage and commentary, this documentary about the classic wushia action films from Hong Kong is so badly connected, a narrative that goes everywhere and nowhere, thus making it inaccessible for general audiences unfamiliar with the genre. It starts very abruptly, talking about Shaw Bros without a proper context of what was the scenario and how these movies came out to be - it starts in the middle, then it goes back briefly, then it goes forward again. It doesn&#39;t get too deep into the production, it goes back and forth in the timeline, misses some key moments and mostly sticks with the american perspective, particularly of sleazy movie theaters in uptown NYC in the 70s. That is all fine, but, how about a little international perspective? Or from the HK/Chinese market?<br/><br/>I give it 5 stars for the subject matter, the footage and some of the interviews; I give it 0 stars for the HORRIBLE editing and directing.
