  • A behind-the-scenes look at Hong Kong cinema, CHOP SOCKY presents a fascinating insight into the techniques, weaponry, and stars who are behind some of the greatest martial arts films of all time. Tracing the genre to its origins in the silent era (and even further back via a look at the Chinese Shaolin Monks who inspired filmmakers to fictionalize their world), the film takes a chronological look at the evolution of the genre. The 1970s saw unprecedented success for martial arts movies, and this is documented at length, with particular focus on the legendary Bruce Lee. John Woo, Jet Li, and many other actors and directors also offer their thoughts, making this a comprehensive guide to the development of an action-packed strain of Hong Kong cinema.
