Kung Fu Explosion: One Armed Silat Boxer


Oh, wow. You just dropped in here like some kind of ninja. Thanks for scaring the bejesus out of me, but I've heard that's occasionally good for the heart. And when you're a chubby guy who spends a lot of time behind a desk, you need a good jolt to the ticker every so often. I guess I should thank you for that. So, uh, thank you... for that. As a token of my appreciation, I've dug through YouTube's multilevel basement and returned with something called One Armed Silat Boxer. In short: It's a hell of a lot of fun.

For me, anyway. Your mileage might vary, depending on your taste level.

The fine folks at Wu Tang Collection have presented this obscure gem in its original language... without subtitles. That means you'll need to figure out the story details for yourself or, as I often like to do, make one up as the film goes along. Chances are, the tale unfolding in your own mind is light-years beyond what's actually taking place onscreen, so don't feel as though you're missing out on anything terribly important. You'll have more than enough action to satisfy your insatiable craving for brutal one-on-one combat; the only thing you'll need to do is fill in the narrative blanks. Alternatively, you can space out until someone starts fighting. I've found that often works, too. Maybe read a book or shuffle some cards. I dunno. Figure it out for yourself.

Anyway, if you're like me and have some time to kill when you're waiting for insomnia to have its icky little way with your mind in the wee hours of the night, then check out One Armed Silat Boxer. It's fun, it's free, and unless you speak the language, you won't understand a word of it. But someone loses a hand at one point, and as always, that's pretty damn cool. Unless you've actually lost in a hand in real life, of course. Sorry if I've offended you in any way, but that's life, right? Don't answer that.
