    Two things stand out in my head about The Perfect Weapon...

    1) It defined "Slappy Hand Art" to be forever associated with American Kenpo
    2) He defeats 4 TKD guys...which is blasphemy...b/c as we all know, TKD guys is the Uber fighter!

    Jeff Speakman made unshaven chests, feathered hair, and hitting people with little slaps that make big noises cool. Or was that Chuck Norris?

    Unfortunately, because of Perfect Weapon, any kind of fighting stick, especially when used in pairs, would forever be called "kenpo sticks". Queplah!!!!!!!!!!!

    Is that the Protector with Tony Jaa or with Jackie Chan( US or HK version)?

    Has anyone really watched Bloodsport recently?I hate to say it, but Don Wilson did it better (not by much) in Bloodfist. The choreography was wretched. Van Damme did better work in No Retreat, No Surrender. Maybe I'm just biased about films associated with Frank Dux.

    If you want an excellent kung fu\ ?ing ?un film, Prodigal Son is the way to go. You can't go wrong with Samo Hung and Yuen Biao!

    Prodigal Son is pretty good, and it even makes fun of McDojo's- Biao has two instructors tell him how good he is, when he really sucks at fighting. Of course, he learns Wing Chun and kicks ass, so I imagine that would ruin it for most people. IF anyone wants a decent tearjerker kickboxing flick, go find, or rent, if you have a Chinatown or Chinese video store handy, "Somebody up There Likes Me", with Leon Lai and Sammo Hung. Another good one, filmed almost like a documentary is "A Fighter's Dream", about a traditional Kung Fu guy that joins a Muay Thai school. Much, much more realistic than your average HK movie, and it doesn't have the usual Kung Fu beats all. Their coach tells them they need to go to Thailand to learn the real Kickboxing, instead of teaching them some "Iron Bridge" or whatever to win.

    Edit-That was Aaron Kwok, not Leon Lai, if anyone cares. It was well reviewed in the NY Times, etc.
