Not really a kung fu movie, but Chocolate was a good martial arts movie. About an ex cop in Korea. Very good.
Saw that one on a whim through netflix, and it wasn't bad.anybody seen the movie "chocolate" ? its featured on netflix instant view. its about an autistic girl who masters fu by way of tv and video games. and what about shaolin soccer now thats good stuff.
Truly a classic. They actually showed it in mainstream theaters back then, before the genre became denigrated as "chop-sockey".All you young whippersnappers have no knowledge of history.
