Have you seen Shaolin (2011) yet? Great, great movie.
Yep, I saw it I believe last year. I wasn't too much of a fan of Shaolin, though it was pretty decent. I watched it during my anything current Donnie Yen phase, so my standards are usually set against them nowadays.
I take it you also must have been a fan of Satruday Afternoon Kung-Fu
. They need to revive it. I've never seen "Master of Flying Guillotine" surprisingly. My favorite old school, next to Five Deadly Venoms (supposedly they were planning on a re-make but it fell through), is Chinese Super Ninjas or Super Ninja. It also goes by, I believer, Five Element Ninja.
The 90s for me was an era of Jackie Chan and Jet Li. I still love their stuff and think Fearless is one of the great Martial Arts films, storywise as well. Brilliant...
