Iron Monkey, the Movie

If you came here through a search for the movie Iron Monkey, you may be thinking, "what's all this about Iraq and soccer and military history and videogames and all this other weird stuff?" You want this.

And if you like that sort of movie, you really should also see Wing Chun, which stars the amazing Michelle Yeoh. It contains my absolute favorite scene in a kung-fu movie, where Wing Chun defends a helpless block of tofu against the relentless attacks of an evil bandit. It is both hilarious and a masterpiece of choreography. Wing Chun and Iron Monkey were choreographed by Yuen Woo-ping, who also was involved with The Matrix and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
