Watch Martial Arts Classics On Your Computer

by | December 10, 2006 | Comments

Got a hankering for some good old classic martial arts flicks but don’t want to leave the house? Now you can take your pick from Direct2Drive’s library of downloadable movies and have Jackie, Sammo and Bruce chop it up on your own PC. Direct2Drive is a sister site of Rotten Tomatoes.

Their Fortune Star wing has twenty titles available for your Hong Kong/martial arts/kung-fu viewing pleasure, including:

"Young Master" (1980) – Jackie Chan‘s directorial debut, about a youthful martial arts master trying to clear the name of his brother and his school, was a hit (starring himself in the title role, naturally) and broke ground by notably combining bone-breaking action with slapstick comedy.

"Battle Creek Brawl" – Jackie Chan’s first Hollywood movie introduced him to international audiences and united the young actor with "Enter the Dragon" director Robert Clause. As a man forced to enter a no-holds-barred fighting competition, Chan kicks, punches, and roller skates his way through America’s finest strongmen.

"Heart of Dragon" – One of many collaborations between Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung, this pic saw the pair of proven fighters stretch their acting muscles as a cop (Chan) and his retarded brother (Hung); the long fight scene in the last twenty minutes might be one of their best works ever.

"Mr. Vampire" — This Sammo Hung-produced horror-comedy-action amalgam is a classic of Hong Kong cinema; the humorous and thrilling tale of one man’s fight to vanquish a female ghost and a hopping vampire started a whole sub-genre of martial arts vampire films!

"In the Line of Duty 4" – Two hotshot cops tackle rogue C.I.A. operatives while protecting a witness in this film series installment, directed by martial arts choreographer Yuen Wo-Ping, starring a young Donny Yen.

For video game enthusiasts, Direct2Drive also have a large selection of titles for download as well. Go here to check out their Fortune Star selections.
