It always amazes me in these hong kong action flicks the cops always are using REVOLVERS.
I love my revolvers...but 5-6shots in a .38spl doesn't compare to a glock or whatever with an extra magazine. I'm not sure if this is just for theatrics or that is their carry piece...a lot of movies the guns cyclinder opens and the rounds fall out adding to the suspense. If anyone knows i'd be curious on the Hong kong police carry? i haven't been to hong kong since 94.

here's more from Sha Po Lang(killzone) someone burned the entirety to youtube.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMBliuL1Z9w

Note the point in which he inserts the blade through the bicep then uses it as a control point and a trap/armdrag. This is an excellent technique in reverse grip...Southnarc uses it in his pikal work.

EDIT- in the movie the patrol officers had a full sized glock.

In 2004, the regular Hong Kong beat cop was still carrying k-frame Smith and Wesson 4 inch revolvers, at least the ones I saw were. I know the Hong Kong Police (formerly the Royal Hong Kong Police until 1997) version of SWAT had all the tools and toys you'd find with an American SWAT team, including semi-auto handguns. If I recall correctly, Glock had it's east asian branch based in HK, so it wouldn't be much of a leap to assume the HK cops were buying Glocks to replace the revolvers.

@peregrine

firearms are illegal in HK... so in theory, there are no guns in their society... i dont know how much of the movies is reality where all the bg's go around with automatics.... but revolvers are standard issue

--------------------------------------

l

The Triads do get ahold of many things that are illegal in HK, firearms included. More and more guns are making their way into the PRC proper. I recall reading about a big gunfight between several gangs in Shenzen.

yeah!

most of the emphasis is on Bruce Lee... cool to see Yip Man get his turn. also he was from a wealthy background to lose it all due to war and forced to work for a living... lots of human interest/drama there!

i didn't look hard on youtube, but i'm sure if it's not up already, it will be soon... the fight scenes that is.


woof G M:

thank you for the info/update!

I am open to other options that anyone might grin have.

My favorite movie fight scene is the Punisher vs the Russian- one of the few fight scenes that's gritty and brutal while still being kinda funny.
I also like all the fight scenes from "The Warriors" for some reason.

I picked up
Ip Man(Yip Man)
cool movie, i'm not sure on the accuracy of this biopic.
There's a nice fight scene in a dojo with Yip Man(Donnie Yen) vs 9-10 japanese soldiers.
Other than that the fight scenes are pretty limited. This movie was choreographed and directed by Sammo Hung.
I've always liked the straight blast, just it's use must be timed like anything. Vitors boxing blast is a variation.

I still want to get Throwdown that judo movie....but I hae to order it via the web.

woof peregrine:

throwdown is good movie (not just cos it has a lot of judo in it, which it does). this was director Johnnie To's homage to Akira Kurosawa.

Donnie fought 10 japanese soldiers. the scene almost had the feel of tony jaa vs 50 guys in tom yum goong.

re:  accuracy, read that Yip Chun was the consultant on the film. that is good AND bad. there is room for exaggeration or embellishment.

matinik

slightly off topic, but yeah, hollywood has been remaking some asian movies for some time now:

the departed (leonardo dicaprio, jack nicholson, matt damon) / infernal affairs 1 (hong kong)
the eye (jessica alba) / the eye (thai/hong kong)
the ring (naomi watts) / ringu (japanese)
lake house (sandra bulloc, keanu reeves) / il mare (korean)

 etc. some upcoming hollywood horror movies are remakes of asian horror movies.

one of the first planned remakes that came to my attention was richard gere's intention to make a hollywood version of john woo/chow yun-fat's the killer ages ago. thankfully that never happened  grin

I was in Kaimuki the other day, watched a little because it was on the TV.  It kind of reminded me of the Bruce Lee movie Fist of Fury \ Chinese Connection. I decided I could wait a little while longer..

to be fair to both movies, you must've only watched that scene where Donnie takes on 10 guys. the rest of the movie Ip Man is nothing like BL's FOF/CC.

In the parking lot at the Inosanto Academy today Jeff Imada was working Denzel Washington with a machete in a fight against some 15-20 guys.  Denzel looked very good, very smooth, and of course Jeff's choreography was awesome.

The first few Steven Segal movies are what finally got me into a dojo and kept me there for six or seven years training in Aikikai Aikido.
I even found the Dog Brothers because of the SS stick fight scene in the bar (anybody seen ritchie ) - ended up purchasing every stick fighting video Panther Production had to offer  cheesy

Also any of the Tony Jaa fight scenes! Acrobatic almost to the point of absurd but his knee & elbow work .... mama mia

From "Never Back Down".  I haven't seen the movie, but I thought this scene was hilarious:

The final fight scene in the movie looks pretty good:

I happened to be the on the set of the M.Night Shyamalan "The Last Airbender" that is filming now for a 2010 release during shooting one of the main battle scenes. I had never seen anything like this before... at least 150+ trained guys doing these incredibly choreographed fights... same thing, over and over and over again so they could get different angles. What's amazing is that there were hardly any injuries. (Amid weapons and stunt guys being flown into the air with cables.) The parts I saw took weeks of longggggg days and, I swear, it couldn't have represented more than 2-4 minutes in the movie. The skill level was amazing. The guys who choreograph this stuff are really amazingly skilled... I just learned a great appreciation for the art of movie making (staging fight sequences). BTW, the set was in an old airplane hanger at the Philadelphia Navy Yard... the biggest soundstage in the world according to Paramount... the set itself (the water tribe compound) was like 4 stories high and a football field long.
