No, it's not a typo. The new martial arts documentary is actually an adaptation of Ric Meyers' book of the nearly identical title: "Films of Fury: The Kung Fu Movie Book". In both his book and movie script, Meyers brings a sharp, humorously insightful look at one of films most prolific sub-genres, the Kung Fu movie. The result is what appears to be a uniquely entertaining portrait of martial arts movies and the people that make them shine.
We'll be trying to make some time to squeeze this one into our schedules, but as soon as we do, we'll let you know how it fares in a review.
