This review is from: Fist of Legend [VHS] (VHS Tape)
To all the viewers who say the action is great but the storyline isn't, they need to get a grip. The reason you watch any action film, hollywood made or HK made isn't because of the plot but the action in the movie. Jet Li is the best Kung-Fu star out there now but please don't compare him to Jackie or Bruce. Jackie Chan has a style all his own and has dominated the HK scene for a long time. Bruce Lee made more realistic films in terms of choreography. People need to realize that in a real fight, you would probably fight more like bruce than Jet or Jackie. So stop saying that Jet Li would beat Bruce because it just wouldn't happen. That being said, this is by far the most superior film made in the last 5 years. The story is good(based on real life events)and the choreography is amazing...although for everyone who thinks that Jet Li really moves that fast, sorry...they speed the film up slightly during certain fight scenes. I like how they incorporated so many different styles of fighting into one movie, you had boxing, karate, jujitsu, aidkido, hapkido, chi-na joint locks, even a little bit of capoiera(sp?) I would have to say that this movie showed that jet can act as well as he can fight...more emotional range than bruce lee ever showed. Only Drunken Master 2 can challenge it for overall best martial arts film ever.
