Breathing Fire Reviews
(1991) Breathing Fire
MARTIAL ARTS ACTION
Do you know that little Chinese kid in Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom Indy adopt as Short Round, well he's older now and one of the two stars in this low budget entertaining martial arts movie. This pass is not for the storyline and the acting since it's mediocre as ever but for the well choreographed fights which one of the problems with many martial art films is that they look too fake since upon figthing no one hardly touches with one another. In this one we get to see what some of these characters can do which is obviously too far fetch in real life but at last it's full contact and without the use of any CGI or wiring.
Some may say that the plot in this movie is shallow, but, obviously, they are not looking for the deeper mysteries in the movie. Like, why does David's beard keep disappearing and reappearing, sometimes within the same fight? What is the point of all the phone books and bricks? Wouldn't those bricks just permanently destroy their legs? Why does David look like Tony Hawk?
Seriously, though, watch this movie. It has Short Round.
