    No scene from Jackie Chan movie?

    • Ipman 6 years ago

      no. but you can add your choice 😀

      jackie chan and jet li are two very famous martial artists that i am not very fond of. Both are extremely talented without a doubt. But I dislike the semi-comical tone of chan films and the OTT wirework in most Jet li films. I have seen very few films of chan. I liked drunken master and fearless hyena. Liked The Shaolin Temple of jet li.

        Well, I have grown up on Chan films and most in India my age are 🙂

        Lets see if I can find some good scenes of him.

        Btw, your list is pretty good – liked it.

        Chan being comical was intentional on his part – as he thought he cant better Lee. Anyways..

        • Ipman 6 years ago

          thanks. yes i think even sputnik can add some scenes from chan films. I can think of many excellent training scenes of chan though but that is a separate topic.

    wow Baba..super post.

    In Raid redemption, I liked the fight where the villain fights the hero and his brother.
    Watch from 1:45

    • Ipman 6 years ago

      thanks muni. I was in a fix with certain films like tyg, raid redemption. 4-5 scenes from these films can be added into the post but i felt others should also be mentioned so curtailed it to 1 scene 😀

    Very good post Baba.

    In the first scene they show many men running towards him but the fight is almost always one on one. I think only a couple of places he fights with two people. Its like the men running at him are from different movie or were added later. The one on one fights itself are good though.

    The IP Man fight has Donnie fighting with 3-4 people at one time. Even this one has him beating up one guy and the others not even attacking him at that time. I think Donnie’s serious expression in that one and the ferocity of his punches makes it great.

    Don’t think the Raid Redemption scene is that great. Its just camera work and real time fight thing which makes it seem good.

    Bruce Lee vs Japanese school scene is great specially when he starts fighting all of them. The background score is great too.

    The Oldboy scene has all of them attacking him together at places and he gets beaten up there. The director was very smart in setting up the fight in a small place like the tunnel whereby the hero gets that advantage of being on one side and all the villains on the other side. The one continuous take with no editing thing is what makes this scene great.

    Warehouse fight is very good too. He uses one guy to repel the attack by everyone at the same time. What I like most is that he is constantly moving in that scene.

    Its the height difference that makes Bruce Lee vs Kareem Abdul Jabbar different.

    Will comment on rest later.

      The first scene i like for the technique by which he breaks the bones. Its superb. He has used various kinds of art forms there from aikido to taekwondo to jiu-jitusu. If you are looking for the most realistic , then its the warehouse scene but the others in the post are as close to real as it can get in various situations.

      In Ipman scene , its a kumite where 10 ppl are attacking one opponent and they dont take him seriously thinking his martial arts is weak.Before the fight, One of the general laughs at him thinking he is sitting duck.They attack him intially but he dodges them .He is constantly moving and attacking .Its not like he is just standing in the middle and beating them up.He breaks the arm of one ,rolls over and then throws lightning punches on another one and breaks the leg of another while always constantly maintaining agility.It is then that they decide to take him seriously and attack together but now their strength is already low by 3-4 ppl.

      The raid redemption is Penchak silat art form. and the action once again lightning quick, set on a narrow floor way and quite violent which is why i liked it.speed matters. like wing chun and krav maga, attacking and defending is done simultaneously to numb the opponent.

    Jackie Chan’s mmovies usually contains his real stunts & broken ribs scenario ‘s in the end credits that are extremely dangerous to perform & those few scenes are lot more thrilling than his comical take. Off course Jackie Chan was the best thing to happen after Bruce Lee and Jet Lee’s entry at the right time when Chan started to look aged and being repetitive in most movies but Jet Lee had limited success with his limited talent display that led to too many movies with similar content and clichéd.

    Tony Jhaa is kind of a revolution, totally unbeatable with some unthinkable moves and his first two movies are kinda historic in my opinion.

    Scott Atkins is considered to be the first complete fighter and some of his moves are very brutal with force similar to Michael Jay White. It’s very surprising to see them so agile with their bug rough & tough body.

    I liked the fight scenes from “The Man from Nowhere” as well. It had very stylish action with some brilliant hand in hand action.

      Donni yen

    • Ipman 6 years ago

      this doesnt look from a movie. its a showcase fight it seems. good one. the shaolin guy almost owned the taekwondo one. as far as speed is concerned, nothing comes close to kungfu, they are the best

      Good documentary on Donnie Yen. All great action stars have the mind of an action choreographer.he is classact. he is 50 years old. it is unbeleivable what he does on screen.

    Top 10 Jackie Chan Moments

    • Anjanpur685Miles 6 years ago

      Wow, nice. Thanks – many scenes I had not seen.

      • Ipman 6 years ago

        i remember the boob fight scene 😀 some scenes from snake and the eagles shadow. this film has great training scenes which were copied in Jigar. I am surprised they chose drunken master sequel and not the original as his best moment.the original is considered a classic by many

    • FS 6 years ago

      All 10 Movies in the clippings are hilarious. He does these scenes with such ease that one can never know how much hard work he had to put and retakes with many injuries in the process. I don’t even remember the names of his movies but I think I have seen almost 70-80% of his movies. Drunken master surely is one of his best film and I was amazed to see him fight in such mannerism.

  12. Anjanpur685Miles 6 years ago

    Agree Baba.

    That boob fight scene is etched in my brain from childhood 😛

    found this review of the raid redemption by mihir fadnavis http://mihirfadnavis.blogspot.in/2012/05/movie-review-raid-redemption.html

    “not since the inception of Tony Jaa back in 2003 has an action hero so gracefully delivered a resounding fist against the action genre’s cheek. Uwais, who was also in Merantau has the endearing looks of the hero you root, cheer and clap for, and one can’t help but wish for a big budget action movie starring Uwais and Jaa, preferably pit against each other”

    So the asshole mihir fadnavis is a tony jaa fan 😀 only good thing he has done in his life

    One of my fav jakie chan fights

    • Ipman 6 years ago

      good scene.many of the moves look fast forwarded for visual impact. jackie chan is a great talent.but i feel he is also one who has never realised his full potential in any fight scene seriously. as someone said on youtube, he is a rare martial artist who gets beaten up more than he ends up beating! all in the name of humour. some of the parkour stuff that he does so easily and randomly often doesnt stand out due to the whole unserious comic feel of the scene.
