    WOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOO!!! Now that is a killer post! Thanks a lot Jake, my weekend is now full. I remember on the weekends when I was younger, the USA Network (I believe), would show an old Martial Arts film about three A.M. That would last until about five, then the 3 Stooges, and finally MST3K. I`m starting of with one of my favorite movies of all time. Master of the Flying Guillotine.

    Glad you guys enjoyed it. How about that fight between Nora Miao and a young Jackie Chan at 4:23?

    Humm... will this be as good as the first one?

    YUP! Better even!

    I like adding the names of the ladies and the titles of the films :-) I wish more "compilations" did this.

    What they lack in skill? They make up with energy!

    @Jake_Justus: Yes! That part was excellent! Jackie gets a few "hits" on her before she "schools" him fiercely! lolz!

    When will fight choreographers learn? It`s OK to let the "good guy" get hit once in a while. In fact audiences love it! Give bad guys just a touch of personality and it vastly improves the film.

    Why do the guys in the background dance around like idiots? LMAO! It`s part of the genre, I know...

    "Why do the guys in the background dance around like idiots? LMAO! It`s part of the genre, I know..."

    Maybe it`s because I grew up reading comic-books, but one of my favorite things about kung-fu movies (old and new) is how ONE person (or maybe two) can take on an entire army. It`s absurd, but as you`re watching it, you`re thinking, "Well, of course this righteous hero can defeat 500 opponents in 3 minutes."

    And, yes, it helps when the bad guys stand around and wait to be noticed by the hero. Man, I love these movies!
