Kungfu and Race Cars

Happy late New Year everyone! It has been a while since I last wrote a blog post. I have been going through a decent amount of stuff. Some of you know that my grandma had a stroke almost a month ago and I have been trying to hold down the house and see my grandma. But she seems to be recovering well all things considered. So thank you for all of your prayers!

The title Kung Fu and Race Cars kind of tells the topic of this blog. I recently purchased a movie called “Thunderbolt”. This is a Jackie Chan film that was released in 1995 and is one of my favorite movies. I had recorded this movie on VHS a long long time ago and used to love watching it all the time. Well once I switched to DVDs and now Bluray 🙂 this movie had long been lost in the pile of decaying VHS tapes. 😛

The cool thing is that I was browsing Best Buy after the holidays I found another classic Jackie Chan movie that I also loved. Rumble in the Bronx. Best Buy was offering the movie for $3 on DVD, so needless to say I bought it. Well this movie reminded me of this other film Thunderbolt. I found it on Amazon for around $6 on DVD. No bluray, but your player can upconvert it.

Well anyways Thunderbolt is a movie about a guy that works for a tow truck company in Hong Kong. He also helps the police force in Hong Kong with detecting illegally modified cars for street racing. As Jackie is helping the police force one day in capturing a fugitive, he ends up bargaining for more than what he was hoping for. This movie has nice car chase scenes and pretty cool martial arts stunts. I read somewhere on the internet that this film is considered one of the most expensive movies ever in HK. Anyways I really wanted to write a quick post about this movie because it has been such a long time favorite of mine. Hope you check it out! Until next time!
