Best Jet Li movie, ever. This is the movie that turned me on to martial arts movies in the first place. The story is not very unique from many other martial arts movies I've seen, but Jet Li is amazing and there are some awesome scenes. The choreography is very cool and not quite as theatrical as many movies have gotten.

Movies the giraffe watched in 2015: July (27 movies items)

"First viewing - July 26th One of my best friends regularly names this among her top 3 films of all time, and I thought at some point we'd watched it but obviously not since none of it was familiar to me. That said, I'm glad I finally did watch it because it freaking rocks. The story is well-told, Jet Li kicks a ton of ass (especially in the first scene), and everything fires on all cylinders. It's definitely among Li's best films, though it didn't quite earn full marks from me. I'll be watching"

"23.06.2015 Jet Li taistelee japanilaisia vastaan tässä filmissä, joka on melko hyvä uusintaversio Fist of Furysta. Ainakin pitkät mättämiskohtaukset oli kuvattu sen verta hyvin, että viihdyin vallan mainiosti tämän parissa."

"To avenge his masters death, He'll fight like never before! Viewed: June 15th Plot: In 1937, a Chinese martial artist returns to Shanghai to find his teacher dead and his school harassed by the Japanese. If all martial arts movies are as viscerally exciting, brutal and amazing as Fist of Legend, then I really have been missing out. Produced during Jet Li's heyday, it's a gorgeously-produced 104-minute action picture with a surprisingly rousing plot and some adequately-developed characters. But"

"Home - Rewatch One of the great Jet Li films, just achingly brutal and amazingly choreographed. The final fight alone is a classic, but it's consistently full of great moments. "

"The early 90's were amazing for Jet Li. He did some amazing works back then and Fist of Legend is one of his best movies to date. A very good story with incredible realistic, brutal and stunning choreographies, like it's hard to find today even after almost 20 years."

"A porn flick that has to be seen to be believed. This is one of those rare cases where the term "legend" is not used loosely. And neither is the fist. Oh wait.... I think I might be getting this mixed up with another movie from a completely different genre......"
