Bruce Lee’s ‘Green Hornet’ Screen Test

This screen cast brings back memories, there is no man on earth that isn’t a fan of Bruce Lee, every Martial Artist after him could never surpass what he did. He brought martial arts to a new level, that exceeding normal expectations, and his speed is amazing in the video. Jackie Chan is a different kind of martial artist, a lot of people compare Jet Li to Bruce Lee because of his speed, but even in this Screen Test Bruce Lee is extremely cast. What surprised me honestly is his grasp of the english language and your talking about 50 years ago which is a different time. What’s also funny is the man refers to them as “Orientals” which could be considered political incorrect in these times, and that old man kept moving after Bruce Lee made his move. For such a short life he has had an impact on the cinema and martial arts world that nobody could compare to.

Review: IP Man

Ip Man is adapted from the life story of Ip Man, the grandmaster of the Wing Chun style of martial arts. This film is the first important record of the master’s life.

I watched a preview about this movie and it got me really interested. A true martial arts story with history at the heart of it. I will not go into the story of movie since it should be seen by every person who likes Asian movies or martial arts.

The best part is how the action is choreographed, I get annoyed with the recent movies how they make you dizzy with the confusing camera angles. The fight scenes were genuine, shots showing all the details, no camera tricks.

Also this movie didn’t focus totally about martial arts, it tells a story about a man who fought for what he believed in, even when it meant not fighting. They show some part of the history of China when invaded by Japan, and what he did to make a stand when he had to.

The later years IP Man spread the art of Wing Chun openly. And one of his most famous disciples is Bruce Lee.
