    They toss around the Wudang mountains a lot, and in the original novel I think that's the style Mu Bai learnt. Didn't really look like TCC to me, though.

    Sword of Many Lovers starring Leon Lai was my favorite wire-fu movie. There was iceskating on mellon rinds, hilarious missuse of poisons, and a climatic fight battle inside a whirlwind.

    I remember an interview with the director saying he wanted Mu Bai to look like he'd done 'wudang' styles.

    They toss around the Wudang mountains a lot, and in the original novel I think that's the style Mu Bai learnt. Didn't really look like TCC to me, though.
    I think the choreographer took poses and moves out of 'internal style' (bagua, xing yi, tcc) forms (empty hand and weapons). I remember an interview with the director where he said he wanted Mu Bai to look like a 'wudang' master with a distinct flavour from the more usual Shaolin stuff.

    As you'd expect, it's all massively stylised (as are the moves in forms).

    Did it look like 'stylised TCC' ?

    Maybe some of the sword moves look like stuff I've seen the form. If I'd wanted to make the unarmed stuff look more like 'stylised movie TCC', I'd have put a lot more big throws in, and less poking pressure points and kicking.

    Yuen Biao is my favourite of the favourite martial art movie stars. He was part of the Jackie Chan/Sammo Hung/Yuen Biao Trifecta of movie actors. They did a ton of movies together.

    This clip is the end fight scene from a movie (I had to import it 8 /) "Iceman Cometh" starring Biao and Maggie Cheung. Quality flick.

    He has plenty of goods to offer, though he is not as famous as most.

    Wasn't he in Kung Fu Hustle? Or just someone who looks like him at age 50?

    Wing Chun with Michelle Leoh is great. As is Tai ji Master 1 and 2.

    Circle of Iron is probably my favorite martial arts film. If only it had been directly blessed by St. Bruce.
