Great Scenes – CITY HUNTER

That particular brand of low-brow insanity that is the staple of Director Wong Jing‘s work returns to the Great Scenes section of IOC (for the previous scene look here) with this slice of kung-fu crossover from City Hunter (1993) that takes blatant and unnecessary commercial pandering to a new low (or is it high?). Here you get the added bonus of watching a cross-dressing Jackie Chan cosplay as not one but two of the Street Fighter arcade characters. Heaven is filled with moments like these.

CUTIE HONEY – This is the way to do low budget special FX

At 1:05 the insanity begins. Watch as Hideaki Anno weaves animation and live action, with comic book flair and a striking visual style in place of the (boring) verisimilitude which American directors seek while missing the point. This is a fun movie which shows what a bit of anime ingenuity can bring to the table.
