Gary Daniels and Jackie Chan in a rare behind the scenes shot from the “City Hunter” Street Fighter 2 scene.
I bought this movie, sight unseen, because I love the anime that it is based on. Unlike the anime which movies back in forth between silly and serious, this movie is pretty much all silly. LOL
It seems to be widely hated among fans of the genre and I fucking love this film. It’s like Wong Jing (the director) took the idea of a spoof and just ran with it.
The whole film is stupid but, for weird reason, it’s also genuinely hilarious. It also features some solid fights. That ode to “Game of Death” is pretty amazing.
I love that, throughout the film, Richard Norton plays it straight, like he’s somehow trapped in this weird wonderland. It’s also great that his gun is an exact replica of Robocop’s.
I’d actually hazard saying that I’ve seen “City Hunter” more than all other kung fu films.
