Chinese People Sure Can Fight

If you’re like me and you hear someone talking about China, the first obvious things you think about are Geisha girls and massages with Happy Endings.

The THIRD thing you undoubtedly think about are Karate guys and ninjas jumping all over the place kicking each other in the face.

Anyway, I keep hearing about this new Chinese action movie, Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen, so this morning I finally decided to do some digging and try to see what all the hoopla was about.

Holy crap!

I must say that I was happily surprised by what I saw below, which apparently is the opening scene of the movie, where I’m guessing Chen Zhen decides he’s had enough of Hitler and decides to single handedly end World War 2.

That’s how it REALLY happened, right? I have to admit that I slept through most of my high school Social Studies classes and got most of my education through watching movies, but I’m pretty sure that we won the war through a combination of the skillful deployment of Terminator robots and the timely intervention of Indiana Jones.

Anyway, check out the video below. I’m not usually a fan of the ‘wire-fu’ method that they use in many martial arts movies nowadays, but I have to admit that this scene makes me want to hit someone in the nuts with a nun-chuck.

Slyde said...

wasnt that cool? he went all Wolverine, Snickety-Snick on that dude..

made chop suey outta that dude... i can't say for sure, but i think it was a Ginzu knive that he was brandishing. the only problem is that if this was the beginning of the movie, it has to go down hill. there is no way that dude can keep up that kind of energy for 2 hours. even rambo needed a break.

Geisha girls? That's what you think of when you think of China?

Japan, dude. Japan. Wow...

Slyde said...

abes: actually, the more reviews ive read, the more people thing another movie called IPman is much better.

earl: again, anything else i might say might be considered racist right about now...

Geisha are Japanese honey. Pretty sure the whores in China don't have fancy names or culutural icons. I could be wrong.

But yes, I do think of happy endings massages. And overly sauced foods.

All that aside bring on some good shit violence. And overly sauced foods.

You're hilarious! I loved this post!

I watched it twice. Pretty kickass!

Bouncin' Barb said...

Geisha Girls = Japan
Concubines = China

I learned that in my Junior year English Lit class. Only thing I ever learned there I think. Figures it had to do with sex to get my attention!

Annabelle said...

Concubines! Thank you Barb. I totally should have known that.

I love Asian action flicks - so does the Evil Twin, so I'm sure this will show up on our Netflix. :-)

Other things in this post that are from Japan and not China: ninjas, karate and nun-chucks. You racist mutha, you.

This just re-enfoces my my beleif that behind ever really pissed off under-rated kung fu master, there is a a) a guy on a machine gun that can't see worth shit, or b) a bunch of ninja dropout students that routinely get their asses kicked by the "A" student.

...and one other thing. When ever I think of China, I think of the country where all the oil is going, becuase they can afford it, where all our bank notes are held, because the own us now, the country that is completing the construction of a 50 story office tower ever WEEK and the only country that is CURRENTLY building Aircraft Carriers, Stealth Fighters, Nuclear Submarines AND sending astronauts into orbit on a regular basis.

You might be better off to watch the news instead of so many chinese action films. Reality is much more scary.

Sounds like a good movie, the kind I watch alone!
The wife doesn't like this type.

meleah rebeccah said...

Looks like a good movie.

Marlene said...

Alas, it seems my fun has come to it's conclusion. What started out being, as Mary would say, "I'm fucking with you, Slyde" has crossed the threshold of good natured "go fuck yourself, self absorbed blogging duechebags" into apparent Fatal Attraction stalking fear causing our hero to check his stewpot for fuzzy little bunnies.

Sooooo, I'm onto the next worthy cause. But as I bid you adieu, I am somewhat dissapointed at the lack of sluething ability displayed by the Great Slyde and his merry minions. The genesys of my mission could very easily be traced to a previous blog, namely, "Bloggers are Spitefull".

Oh, and 1 more thing "Brandy Rose" looks fucking hot in her profile pic...just sayin

Looks good! Will have to check it out!
