My thoughts on Fist of Legend
by Kuma - Trent Warner
(The Martial Art Hall of Warrior Training)
I give this martial arts movie the G.O.A.T. title
(Greatest Of All Time) and place it at the top the must have list.
"What makes this movie so incredible that I give it the G.O.A.T. title?"
Well, first of all it has some of the most realistic fight scenes I have ever seen. I have been training in the warrior martial arts since I was 8 yrs old and have been watching martial arts movies even longer.
This movie was remarkably done. Even though it was a remake of Bruce Lee's Fist of Fury (Chinese Connection), the plot held it's own.
And the action was modernized. Jet Li captured the spirit of Bruce Lee, while adding his own martial art signature to each action scene.
I extremely enjoyed the scene when Japanese students rush in to the a class room where Jet Li's character is. As they proceed to attack him. he disables them with several dim-mak and chin-na techniques.
When their master arrives he begins healing them by resetting bones and neutralizing the martial arts pressure points used. It was a very yin-yang scene.
It is this kind of action and interaction that makes this movie great.
Fist of Legend is a quality martial art movie with a decent story line. Making it worth watching again and again. This Jet Li movie is a must for every martial arts movie library.
