    The problem is that "The Empire Strikes Back" had better editing, cinematography, direction, dialogue, acting and everything. It set the bar so high that I have to be careful not to sound too negative when speaking of the third entry, as "Return of the Jedi" feels so inferior in comparison- even though it's pretty good in almost every way.

    "A Force of One" has a pretty cool, if a bit absurd, concept going for it. Who doesn't like the idea of Chuck Norris training police officers to fend off a cop killing serial killer, while he prepares for a climactic fight with Bill 'Superfoot' Wallace?

    Amusingly, ripping off Indiana Jones probably made "Magnificent Warriors" into the most original kung fu flick since...ever...I expect characters to introduce their fists to the faces of their enemies, but I don't expect aerial combat, fedoras and explosive car chases.

    "The Wandering Swordsman" is a good movie that might even be great, reminding me that before choreography became the focus of the genre, Hong Kong productions could be as sophisticated as anyone else. The writing, direction, cinematography, acting, editing and productions values are pretty impressive, although the choreography is pretty unimpressive in retrospect.
