    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Anyone know the style of Kung fu in 5 fingers of death?

    I was watching this on the EL REY channel the other night. I doesn't look like Hung Gar or Choy Lay Fut, but they do a set in the in the school as well as before he demonstrates the Iron Palm. I was thinking either it was White Crane or Northern Shaolin. Anyone know?

    Helps if you give an idea of when in the movie it is. I bet people would be far more willing to help, if they didn't have to watch 90 minutes of movie for 30 seconds of footage.

    The protagonist in King Boxer (aka FFOD) is Lo Lieh. From what I've seen/read, he had a hodgepodge of styles associated with him including Hung ga and Ba gua. Maybe Bak Mei.

    Give us a time ref.

    And even with that background, who knows if that has anything to do with what he does on screen. I remember reading an interview with Gum Tang/Cliff Lok, saying that his liu hei ba fa would look like crap on the screen, so what viewers saw was more like "Southern Movie Style".

    Movie fu that is not worth the time to worry about.

    Train more and stop worrying about made up silliness in Kung Fu Movies.

    I have a really bad pinched nerve in my spine (54 years old, considering surgery) so training more would not help at this point. I had just been curious. I will watch it again and find the point in the flick where they do a portion of a set. Also, the form in One Armed Boxer looks similar. Of course, chili pepper could be right, and they just through together some moves (like contemporary Wu Shu) that the stunt men could mimic quickly and easily.

    On styles you can actually identify (mostly), I am pretty sure the red-sashed guy at the tournament at the end of this is supposed to be a southern or Hung ga stylist. (1:28 in, the one Chao Chih-Hao/Lo Lieh finally uses the "Iron Fist" AKA Sho Nuff red glow to defeat).

    All the usual "caricature" ie. cinematographic treatments.

    Common theme in the movies when a tournament comes around...you gotta defeat the Hung stylist to prove your kung fu is awesome.

    Happened in Fearless, King Boxer, even "Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story".

    If your style can't defeat the Hung style in the movies, it's CRAP!
