Attention Amoebites & Amoebloggers: I'm putting on a show!
FIST OF LEGEND
Saturday, August 23, 2014 // Midnite
Widely regarded as the greatest film of two legendary careers, Fist of Legend teams international superstar Jet Li with martial arts choreographer Yuen Wo-ping (Drunken Master, Kill Bill 1 & 2, The Matrix trilogy) for some of the most awe-inspiring fight sequences you’ll ever see. In this tribute to Bruce Lee’s classic The Chinese Connection (aka Fist of Fury), Li radiates sheer power and coolness as folk legend Chen Zen: a kung fu phenom living abroad who returns home to avenge the death of his master, and save his martial arts school. Shifting effortlessly among diverse fighting styles, Li battles blindfolded, wields his belt as a lethal weapon and more, as each action set piece raises the bar to unbelievable heights of art, beauty and precision. It’s a deadly ballet of skill, speed and agility; your jaw will hit the floor watching cinema’s pre-eminent kung fu badasses working at the pinnacle of human ability!
Dir. Gordon Chan, 1994, 35mm, 103 min.
