Dojo Ten: Top Ten Team Ups
One of the highlights of watching old school classic kung fu movies is what I like to call the team up. The team up is when a group or duo must put aside their differences and combine their skills to defeat a total bad a**. These movies usually feature some very creative fight scenes while hyping the idea of teamwork. The Film Fan Dojo has compiled a list of some of the most exciting fu filled team up movies in the classic kung fu genre. What do you think? Feel free to add your favorites in the commentary section. May the FU be with you!
