Pretty generic martial arts documentary, some obscure names though.
15 February 2002 | by danmitchSee all my reviews

This is very much the same as lots of other 'documentaries' which actually consist of fight scenes, interviews, and the odd bit of voice-over.

As ever, Jackie Chan's interview is interesting, because the guy gives good interviews -- the bit about Bruce Lee is also neat, some old footage I'd not seen before.

The most worthwhile thing about this, though, is the listing of little-known fighters, some of whom really deserve greater stardom. (oh, and a hilarious trailer for a Bolo Yeung film called "Chinese Hercules"..)
