I like the old school style against the red & the FIST OF FURY like birds eye view kicks.

To me it just looks like a trailer for an MTV advert, combined with matrix special effects as usual.
This will be no doubt another wire worked up kung fu special effects movie.

Nothing has come remotely close to Tony Jaa's "Tom Young Gong" nothing.

Tony's film had believability and not special effects and wire techniques, to me that's just played out and boring unless it's for a fantasy film.

I know we a appreciate the skill but cinema is the great pretend.
There is quite a lot of special effects in Tony's films & wire work is used for other people than Tony though it speculated whether or not he has used them. When Tony's films came to DVD we were told no stunt doubles, no CGI, no wires well all 3 were used thought I don't know if Tony used wires him self but CGI was obviously there & well Tony was for vehicle stunts he had a tuk tuk driving double but non of these things take away much from the film to be honest I think they are saying no stunt doubles, no CGI, no wires when they mean less than what has become normal now.
