Nunchuck Scene from Legend Of The Fist

When people talk about Donnie Yen’s best movies I’m always surprised that Legend of the Fist doesn’t get more love; it’s certainly one of my favourites as it’s beautifully shot, has a great story and most importantly has this awesome fight scene at the end which is a nice tribute to Bruce Lee who starred in the original Fist of Fury.

Plot: Seven years after the apparent death of Chen Zhen, who was shot after discovering who was responsible for his teacher’s death (Huo Yuanjia) in Japanese-occupied Shanghai. A mysterious stranger arrives from overseas and befriends a local mafia boss. That man is a disguised Chen Zhen, who intends to infiltrate the mob when they form an alliance with the Japanese.

Disguising himself as a caped fighter by night, Chen intends to take out everyone involved as well as get his hands on an assassination list prepared by the Japanese.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
