Stick Beats Knife
I’ve always enjoyed coreographed fight scenes. They relay a lot of information about the characters and their struggles in an aesthetic yet action packed manner – making them ideal storytelling tools – but it is also possible to delve into the story of the participants, the coreograph and the director. There’s many layers of information and understanding to unlock (especially for a guy with a lot of time and a lot of Google).
This is Donnie Yen bringing a baton to a knife fight.
