Well, in martial arts circles, the talk is all about the new Donnie Yen film, Ip Man. I’m flying to Singapore on Saturday for a few days to get a few things done, and I hope to catch this in the cinema there. Should be fun 😀
In my local DVD store, I also found a couple of martial arts movies that look interesting, although i haven’t had time to watch them yet.
The first is Redbelt, about a reluctant warrior who prefers the tranquillity of his dojo to the competition scene.
The second is JCVD, in which Jean-Claude van Damme plays a loosely fictionalized version of himself. Apparently, this is the film in which he finally shows that he really can act, and there are hopes that this could do for his career what Pulp Fiction did for John Travolta.
I’ll let you know what I think once I’ve watched them…..
