What are some good wire-fu movies available on DVD? I just watched Iron Monkey and loved it, Crouching Tiger is great too. What other movies am I missing?
Okay...so what is "wire-fu".I need some enlightenment.
I really liked both Iron Monkey and CTHD...they took me back to my youth and USA's Kung-Fu Theater on Sundays.Wire-fu would basically refer to movies like the ones you mentioned, where the characters perform moves that are truly beyond a human's ability to do naturally. The actors in those movies fly through the air with the aid of wires, so people have taken to calling martial arts films like that "wire-fu".
