5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive guide to Kung Fu movies., 24 Aug 2008
DD (UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Essential Guide to Hong Kong Movies: Woo, John (Paperback)
Definitive guide up until 1994, when this book was published. Apparently the aim was to publish a second edition, but this didn't happen and this book, is itself very difficult to get hold of. The book is divided into four sections; Kung Fu/swordplay, Modern Day Action, Heroic Bloodshed and Erotic/ Fantasy/Horror (with a picture gallery in the middle).Each section lists the films in alphabetical order with stars, director, producer and, where possible, fight director, brief synopsis and a rating out of five. For a collector and fan of kung fu films, this is very useful. The downside is that I am now spending a fortune on old kung fu films!
It is a pity that this book isn't more easily available as it is a bible for martial arts collectors.
