I’m a fan of Hong Kong martial arts films. Not the chop socky seventies porn soundtrack late night on USA ones, but the “new school.” The latest crop of films out of HK cinema have started to use amazing digital effects in addition to the already superb wirework. Probably one of the best that I’ve seen is a little flick called, “The Storm Riders.” It is one of the most beautiful examples of the genre that I’ve ever seen. It’s entertaining, and it’s great fun.
Not to mention that there’s a lot of digitally enhanced ass kicking. Trust me, track this one down. You’ll thank me the first time you see a wind kick.
