Mr. Logan says this is probably his favorite movie so you know he wants to give the best commentary possible. Well, itís just as interesting as his other tracks, with the added bonus of talking about Wing Chun. The most interesting thing about the track, for me, was the history of Wing Chun. Mr. Logan, I suppose, was inspired after watching this movie so he took lessons. He knows a lot about martial arts and he points out the different styles. He also goes into a lot of detail about Wing Chun and itís history. Thatís quite interesting. He also points out some of the jokes. Sammo Hungís character is explained in a little more detailed (heís a ruffian whoís trying to act sophisticated) and explains one of the jokes that could only be understood if you know Cantonese. He, as usual, talks about all of the actors and their careers and points out the many bit players and says the other movies theyíve been in. Itís all quite interesting and informative.
