Martial Arts Classic

I was introduced to a film last week, and not in your typical “this film is really bad, its so cheesy and from the 80’s!” kind of fashion, but more that its pure genius.

I’ve always been a fan of action movies, no matter how new or old. If they manage to hit the spot (whatever that is) and excite to an irrational level then you can be pretty sure I’ll give it a watch. I went along thinking it was going to be ‘just another one of those cheesy dubbed movies’ and regardless to say, it was. But my god, it does it differently, well and with style.

I am of course talking about ‘The Kick of the Kickboxers’,  released in 1991. If you’re a fan of those early Jackie Chan movie, needless to say this will go down a treat. It has parody, humor, action by the bucket load and even a dodgey sex scene. But the main thing about this movie is its style, its as if it knows how its coming cross and the director was incredibly proud with it.

A few unknowns making appearances, along with one of the baddest villains since the apocalypse, this film delivers on all levels the genre should.

(Lets hope this works)

Check out the trailer below and if you trust my judgement, by the DVD itself. My friend picked it up for £3, and for that price  you cant really go wrong!
