With Iron Protector, I think director Yue Song failed the actor Yue Song; he was too close, too invested in his movie to notice how it was going wrong. Side-note: I’m not one to hold a film’s trailers against a movie, because I know that the filmmakers aren’t always responsible for how a studio decides to market their movie. Other people have said Xing Yu and Yue Song are not good leading men because their starring films weren’t good, but I think they’d be great with the rights scripts and fight choreographers. Pour éviter d'être arrêtés, deux d'entre eux sont envoyés par Choi se mettre au vert à la campagne. (2016). Director Song is too focused on showing contact with each blow that he cuts at almost every opportunity.

I didn’t think so, however opinions may vary on this. But even this enjoyable action sequence suffers from poor filmmaking choices. cityonfire.com is a non-profit website for the private use and entertainment and/or parody purposes. I guess I’m the black sheep with this one, as I only watched it recently, meaning 18 months have passed since that ridiculous trailer claiming it was the best thing since sliced bread. Wu-Lin soon discovered that a group of mobster led by Jiang Li, attempts to kidnap Fei-Fei. Unless there was a schedule conflict though, I don’t know what the point is of having Collin Chou in a martial art movie if he’s not gonna fight. Choi réagit en envoyant des hommes enlever sa fille. Because of the film’s unintended laughs and anything goes attitude, Iron Protector has already earned some fans, and may become an accidental cult classic in the kung fu film world. I was actually quite interested in this movie after seeing the first trailer. I hope it's a sign…, I know exactly what you're talking about lol. Basically, that’s exactly what I got. While keeping a low profile after his defeat by Ip Man, Cheung Tin Chi gets into trouble after getting in a fight with a powerful foreigner. It made the movie very difficult to watch and I had to turn it off. Bad guys bust through, make the kid cry, and trample the ice cream cone. Iron Protector We have to go 45 minutes into this 90 minute film before a fight sequence made me sit up and take notice (this sequence has villains put cartoonish leg locks on our hero and some Andre the Giant-looking guy throws him around like a ragdoll.

Instead you have bodies being thrown into all kind of breakable props, faces being hit by a variety of appendages, and one of my personal favorite tropes of HK action cinema of old – the flying kick through the windshield of a moving vehicle. Sure, these are all reasons that justify the 5/10 score, but for me they kind of added to the whole goofy charm of ‘Iron Protector’, so approaching it in this context I’d give it a 7.5/10.
