Arguably a better action choreographer than an overall director, even so Corey Yuen was responsible for a couple of stand-out martial arts films. If you're in the mood for some Eastern action cinema, Yuen has a solid oeuvre to explore.

You have to be a fan of wire-fu antics and elongated martial arts scenes to appreciate a film like this, but if you do then you're getting one of the most spectacular and creative films in the genre.

A simply but amusing sequel that sees Stephen Chow taking another jab at the famous Bruce Lee classic. If you like Chow's trademark comedy, there's plenty to enjoy here. Some crazy fight scenes, some utterly daft but hilarious jokes and solid pacing. It's not the greatest film ever, but it's damn good filler.
