  • Balls

    It’s a tremendous fight scene.

  • Balls

    So many to choose from: Flash Gordon, the Rocketeer, the Spirit, the Shadow, the Phantom, Dick Tracy, the Green Hornet, the Saint, Sky Captain. I’d love to be a part of it, if they decide to do it.

  • Indianamcclain

    At the very least it’d be a reason to revisit all those films.

  • Reed Farrington

    Trademark that title, The Wizard of Wuxia, Vanessa. I wouldn’t be surprised if an Asian film comes out with that title.

  • Reed Farrington

    Zak got burned. Love it!

  • Reed Farrington

    In deference to our Indigenous population, Canada is removing the word “Chief” from our titles. (I’m not kidding.)

  • Careful not to poke the bear, Annie. Zak knows stuff. I’ve been hearing aaall about what you get up to at the mall ;)

  • There will be an Australasian film coming out with that title. The Wizard of Wuxia starring Reed “The Wizard of Wuxia” Farrington.

  • Peter Harrison

    So what does the Chief of Police become?

  • Buy Contact Lenses

    Awesome work.Just wanted to drop a comment and say I am new to your blog and really like what I am reading.Thanks for the share

  • Reed Farrington

    I’ll star in the film as long as I don’t have to kickbox a kangaroo.

  • Reed Farrington

    So far, only the school board of Canada’s largest city is making the change. They’re replacing “chief” with “manager” or “executive officer.”

  • A CG Kangaroo will definitely be kicking you in the nards, Gerry.

  • kamenhaven

    Isn’t Master of Wuxia more appropriate? Coz Kung Fu masters don’t do magic. Or do they

  • kamenhaven

    Great fight scene for sure. My personal favourite is the warehouse fight scene in Drunken Master II (Or Legend of Drunken Master in US) which I think is like one of the high points of martial arts films. Or the warehouse fight with Benny Urquidez in Dragons Forever. Or the warehouse fight in Police Story II. Geez what’s up with warehouse set-pieces in Jackie Chan movies?
