Granted, both of these movies are Hong Kong martial arts movies, which are more known for their vitality in the eponymous martial arts and action, and not in the story.
Of these two classics, Fist of Legend is, in my opinion, the better movie.
This is because throughout the film, all of these characters are grouped together in Jing Wu, and are barely highly as individual characters. Chen Zhen The fictional character of Chen Zhen has become something of a martial arts hero, representing Chinese national pride, specifically against the Japanese, through kung fu movies.
I can confidently say that no Asian martial arts actor cold ever reach his level of ability, let alone his level of fame, influence and recognition. By the early Song period, sets were not so much "individual isolated technique strung together" but rather were composed of techniques and counter technique groupings.
Forms contained both literal, representative and exercise-oriented forms of applicable techniques that students could extract, test, and train in through sparring sessions.
Both films follow Chen Zhen, a fictional Chinese martial arts hero who seeks out justice for the wrongful death of his master, Huo Yuanjia also known by his Cantonese name, Fok Yuengapby Japanese oppressors.
I would even go as far as to say that in character, Bruce is passion. From the s, Kung Fu in popular culture has spread from books to the wider audience of TV shows and cinemas.
Instead, the lead should be complimented by other supporting roles that make a complete plot, and by extension, a more enjoyable movie. Teachers are often heard to say "train your form as if you were sparring and spar as if it were a form. The death is subsequently used to frame Chen Zhen for murder.
Watching this from a more mature perspective now, I found that this overtone ultimately took away from the overall enjoyment of the movie.
Fist of Legend is the better film. The proportion of good and evil characters in the movie is distributed on both Chinese and Japanese sides, which demonstrates that it is the nature of individuals, not ethnicities, that determines their position.
In Fist of Fury, Chen Zhen is a very passionate character to say the least. The modern TV action series depict martial arts focusing on violence and spectacle without portraying the true philosophies behind this art.
Similar expression of the temporal dimension of Kung Fu was also displayed in the Shaw Brothers Studio productions in the s and s. This is a classic movie in the sense that it focused on the temporal dimension of the Kung Fu art in contrast to the skills that were in focus in the Bruce Lee film.
And surprisingly, Fist of Legend manages to do just that. There are a number of reasons for this.In contrast, in traditional Chinese martial arts alternative terminologies for the training (練) of 'sets or forms are: Jackie Chan (b. ) is a Chinese martial artist and actor widely known for injecting of Chinese martial art have been widely recognized and have a global appeal in Western cinemas starting off with Bruce Lee.
