JADE CLAW + KUNG FU EXECUTIONER

JADECLAW

If last week's martial arts double feature at the New Beverly Cinema is any indication (for example, the second feature ended with a seriously bad dude ripping an eagle in half), you won't want to miss this week's Billy Chong 35mm twofer. Like a certain Chan, Chong has considerable comedic as well as athletic chops. Even though Chong may lack Jackie's universal appeal (a balance of charisma and go-for-broke bravado), he makes up for it with extreme dedication to total weirdness and minutia. In last week's A FIST FULL OF TALONS, Chong's character is introduced by a frankly hypnotic scene where he washes a horse - in the most original, acrobatic way possible. There can't be another movie out there where that happens. Trust me. Just go. - SBP
