Kung Fury was funded mainly through a Kickstarter campaign, where people from all around the world showed their support for this crazy project. David worked on the film for a more than a year with almost no budget but a strong vision, with the help of friends and family. Most of the film has already been shot, but additional filming and lots of visual effects remain to be done.

Review: Story of Ricky a.k.a. Riki-Oh by Chris Tang

Usually, when it comes to Hong Kong movies, I generally like to watch films with expertly choreographed fight scenes, with complex and intricate moves; sweeping direction with kinetic camera moves following the action of long kung fu battles. Recently however, I just fancied watching something super-violent and bloody! I remembered sometime back in the early 2000's, I bought a film that this description fits perfectly, so I thought I'd re-watch it, and review it here.

Be warned, this film is not for the faint-hearted!

Review: Dragon (a.k.a. Wu Xia) by Chris Tang

It's been a little while since I reviewed a kung-fu film, so I thought I'd take a look at the Peter Chan directed “Dragon”, starring Donnie Yen; a kind of CSI meets martial arts movie. It was released on UK DVD August last year.

What's it all about?

Set in 1917, Donnie Yen stars as Liu Jinxi, a papermaker who has made a home for himself in a Yunnan village where he has been living for the past ten years. He lives with his wife Ayu (Lust Caution's Tang Wei) and their two sons, and is content with family life.

When a couple of wanted criminals enter the village, and demand money from his workshop, Liu somehow bungles his way through their robbery, and manages to stop them, killing them in the process, and becomes a hero amongst the people of his village.

Enter Xu Baiju (Takeshi Kaneshiro), a police inspector who sees the law as even more important than humanity. What will his investigation into Liu Jinxi's past reveal?
