Episode #238: Collaboration with Jeremy Lesniak from Whistlekick – Benny the Jet vs. Jackie Chan Part 2 from “Dragons Forever” (1988)
This week, we have another special episode! Jeremy from the martial arts site and biweekly podcast, Whistlekick, and I are watching a fight scene from the movie Dragons Forever and commenting on it. (You can listen to the same episode with a slightly different intro and outro on Whistlekick as well – coming on 3/5). If you didn’t catch our earlier collaboration from the 1984 Jackie Chan – Benny Urquidez film, Wheels on Meals, you can listen to that here.
As before, we are watching it half speed, which you can do on Youtube along with us by picking the playback speed (click on the gear in the lower right hand corner of the Youtube video window). Here’s the clip:
I was able to find the Black Belt magazine article I referenced in the film, though it doesn’t talk about either of these fight scenes; I must have gotten that from somewhere else. It is, however, an interview with Benny about his fights to date (this was from 12/1985), so a few years before this movie was shot. You can read it below:
