    Default Why are good Martial Arts TV series LACKING now?

    Almost everything I watched last year (Non-Jin Yong stuff) are half-assed Wuxia stuff.

    By that, I mean, the fights are SO bare.

    At best, a nice fight scene every other episode.

    At worst, no quality fight scenes for more than 10-20 episodes.

    Jin Yong stuff, you can't compare, those are like good Wuxia almost EVERY episode.

    What am I missing.

    China, serious, STEP THE F**K UP!!!

    because the 2020-2021 trending is romance scene, male-female or male-male relationship

    China is going the wrong direction.

    Wuxia, Kung Fu RULES!!!

    That's the sad thingy. Chinese movies n drama was known for good action scenes and choreography.

    Now even high budget movies fight scenes r bad compared to Hollywood or power rangers.

    Chinese drama need good choreography and real martial artist like Donnie yen yuen woping etc to be in charge of choreography.

    That's u I liked Kung fu cult with jet li and Chang mo kei, real martial artist portraying jin yong adaption and make the fight look legit even with all the chi blast etc.

    Also I believe it's also bc of insurance and the actors.

    Fans complain of actors don't do own stunts etc. But these are high bill actors actress n they have multiple filming endorsement etc to shoot after each project. So just editing quick pace shots etc if faster and cheaper

    I feel you OT. It's probably because of the restrictions due to pandemic that some film productions were postponed?
