Audience Reviews for Fatal Contact
While Fatal Contact may not be as good as other superior Martial Art movie in terms of choreography, it delivers on story for the most part. A opera performer, who's also a former Martial Art Champion, is lured to enter an underground tournament, competing against some of the top fighters of the world. The plot for the most part satisfy me, though I did feel at times some plot-lines are unnecessary. It really doesn't get any better as it goes on, but it works for the most part as I found the twist to be interesting and liked the ending. Though my main complain about the movie it that it doesn't with one last battle, now not all Martial Art movies are supposed to end with a final battle, but I still found it disappointing. The choreography is decent and enjoyable. Out of all of the action scenes in this movie only two really wow. There're filmed well and performed well, but considering the modern setting I was expecting the environment to be used in combat and it wasn't used much. Fatal Contact is an unusual Martial Art movie that doesn't exactly does one thing better over the other. For what it was I enjoyed it, though I still think it could have been better. While you can't go wrong with this movie, it's mostly a you like it or you don't opinion with this movie.
Jacky Wu delivers in this punchfest thinly disguised as a melodrama. The fighting and action work best; the drama not so much. Fairly stereotypical characters well acted keeps this HK film interesting and moves at a decent clip. The main problem is the ending..it simply elicits behavior that is out of character with the main leads (Jacky and Miki) and brings the story to a screeching halt. Watch it for the fights though...fine choreography that will keep you engrossed.
Fantastic fight scenes and a decent story make this one a great purchase from the always great Dragon Dynasty. Plus the ending is a corker.
