Kung Fu elliot (2014)

Real or not it is well filmmaking.

Showing the only martial art action hero that Canada would have had / has was quite a task that climaxed in what can be seen at the end of the film.

I tried to find any pure Canadian action heroes, but no success.

Looks like believing in what  Jaret BELlIVEau and Matthev Bauckman are showing us is the option.

Man of Thai Chi

Keanu Reeves plays a villain in the martial arts movie that he self directed. Tiger Hu-Chen that plays “The Man of Thai-Chi” himself performs quite well. We also have a cameo from Iko Uwais (watch out for the 2nd “Raid” movie) and few known actors as supporting cast.
An average martial-arts-tournament movie with couple nice moments. You won’t be disappointed or knocked down by the film either.

 

And who you’re fighting for?

Great combination of a  Women in prison-, martial arts- and revenge- movie. Rachel Nichols’ appearance is pretty damn good (IMO she kicked more ass here than in all episodes of Continuum). Zoe Bell get’s reunited with Tracie Thoms again after the memorable team-up in Deathproof. Has there ever been a women only martial arts movie? Now there is one for sure. The fight sequences are dynamic and brutal (Fight Club face smashing multiplied by 10).

The last few scenes of the movie however kinda spoiled the great impression that I gained during the first 85% of the film. The ending could be much more better, and CGI-blood free.

Fred

I re-watched The Hammer by accident and added That Man Bolt to complete the set. The new movie was actually a positive surprise. Fred Williamson will always be one of the best.
