I don’t think that Enter the Dragon is the best film by a long shot.
I’m not going to debate Bruce Lee’s ability but here’s my take on Bruce Lee films - his on screen fighting style is too clinical - one punch KO’s, side kicks with dramatic pause after them, alot of grimacing and general posing.
films like Police Story and Jet Li films have many more of the more flashier moves but they are well used in the fight scene so that the whole thing is believable - jumping back spinning kicks are of no use in a real fight but look good if a scene is put together well.
I love the old school, tradition style kung fu films like Shaolin Temple, but a film with a more modern setting needs to have kung-fu fused with a streetfighting element.
One of the most realistic fight scenes is the fight between Hugh Grant and Colin Firth in Bridget Jones (not er…that, er…i’ve seen that film). Real guys with no training, and even guys with training, fight like that - like the way children fight.
I could debate this all day…[/quote]
I don’t think we need to get into any debate; Some enjoy these movies for realistic fighting, some for good MA display, some for extreme athleticism, some just enjoy all these qualities. In any way, the above mentioned are good martial action movies to watch.
