Maybe the greatest 20 minutes of cinema ever. "I'm no ding-a-ling!"

Warner Bros. currently has a developing Kung Fu picture right now?? NO! Ordinarily I would cry genuine tears, but you see, I have ALWAYS planned to make this one of my first big feature-films. I wrote a script, I have it storyboarded, blah blah blah. Then Warner Bros. has to go and develop it as an in-house project! Aaaarrrggghh! Too bad, I guess that means I will be moving onto something else...you play with established worlds without already having the power and you get burned I find. Only I thought I was one of the only people left in the world who loves the show. Apparently not. I mean, I even watched every episode of Kung Fu: The Legend Continues. I know it was crappy, but it was a continuation of his legacy. Can Tarantino even say he watched all those as well?

Should it not be: the AICN-ers were just smiling like a Durex test group?!

just rename it an no one will ever know. Also Harry is dead on about Lee. Li sucked but Bruce Lee the 100% real deal was the man. Intensity in every way that mattered. You hit the nail on the head, Bruce is the Hendrix of film. Shocked QT don't see that but he was always one for the obscure.

Definitely my favorite Jackie Chan movie. The scene with the spears is incredibly cool.

'This is is not a chawade. This wequires TOTO CONCENTWATION.' 'This is his bodyguard: he is tough and ruthless. And here is his chauffeur: he's rough and toothless.' 'Wa. Wa. Wa. Wa. Wa.'*decapitates prisoner* 'Now take him to be tortured!' 'No. not DETROIT. NOOOOOOOOOOOO!' If they had spread this out to a feature it would have been better than Airplane.

"He's about as good a martial artist as I am an actor".

Whilst we're on the subject of "great" screen martial artists- everyone is quick to jump on the Bruce Lee/Jackie Chan/Jet Li bandwagon, when in fact they all pale in comparison to Tomisaburo Wakayama, a.k.a. "Lone Wolf" from the Babycart series. In terms of on-screen charisma, an authoritative and totally convincing display of martial arts prowess, and just sheer out and out ferocity, the guy had NO EQUAL.

Damn, there's a blast from my childhood - when the whole family would sit down and watch Chuck Norris movies. And actually ENJOY them.

So Quentin said he doesn't like Chow Yun Fat as of recently. So what? His best stuff was probably when he was back in Hong Kong, action-wise. The man is a superb actor, though. So Quentin has an opinion opposite of your, Shpedoinkle. God forbid he think differently than others. Having a mind and thought of his own makes him an ass, of course. Geez. And though Carradine wasn't a great martial artist, he is a fantastic and intelligent dude. Just listening to him out in the lobby for hours on end talking to people like you and me about the deepest stuff was wonderful. Something I'll never forget. Anyway, if he did know better Kung Fu, it still wouldn't have mattered. The network censors would only allow 2 minutes of fighting per episode. So lay off. No one ever said Carradine was a more physical actor than Lee or anyone else.

I don' tthink that was called for at all, considering the fact that if it wasn't for Chow QT wouldn't have a career.
