It's one small flying kick for Jet Li, one giant leap for kung fu cinema. When the traditional kung fu flick had been dead for a decade, Tsui Hark (Once dubbed 'the Spielberg of the East') resurrected it by marrying art and commerce in a way that preceded 'Crouching Tiger' by a decade. The OUATIC films are entertaining yet intelligent. They are dominated by social themes that have lost none of the relevance. The performances are wonderful, the cinematography and score work with the sets and costumes to add to this rich tapestry of cinema. And the fights... Wires are used to enhance rather than replace the skills of the performers. The choreography is sublime. No self respecting kung fu fan could do without the first two OUTIC movies. Those with no time for kung fu cinema would do well to seek this out too. Some people like the third film - I didn't. But there's no excuse not to buy this box set. The DVDs contain the Original Cantonese version, a terrible dubbed version, and informative commentary by Hong Kong Cinema Expert Bey Logan. Stick on the subtitled version, turn out the lights and watch the finest that martial arts cinema has to offer.
