Film reviews: 
<p>ABMN STAR Filmz - 1 week ago (edited) This film is EXCELLENT! Great directing, wonderful concept, amazing color/lighting and the actors are very good. Putting it on a list I call &quot;Great Movies (Short Films)&quot; on our channel. I have to &quot;Sub&quot; :-)...Arlene PogieJoe - 1 week ago Love it! The slo-mo snow was amazing. World Film Geek - (https://worldfilmgeek.com/2016/08/15/a-look-at-johnny-wus-wu-xia-a-kung-fu-tango/) The 10-minute short film stars Andrew Santin and Benjamin Zgorecki as Sam and Neil, two prospective fighters who are worthy by taking on the Five Element Fighters Gold (Jedidiah J. Fabian), Wood (Jerry Sur), Water (Kristina Michelle), Fire (Matthew Kane), and Gold (Keith Collins II, who also choreographed the fight scenes). The film shot on location in Cleveland, Ohio and it is quite a fun short film that fans may enjoy, with its comic book-like frames and influence on martial arts films, with perhaps an influence from perhaps Five Element Ninjas with the five fighters representing the elements seen in the 1982 Shaw Brothers classic. Action A Go Go - (http://actionagogo.com/2016/08/17/director-johnny-wu-delivers-a-2-on-5-martial-arts-tango/) I won&rsquo;t lie to you. One of the perks of manning Action A Go Go is that you occasionally receive cool things in your inbox. A Martial Arts Tango, director Johnny K. Wu&lsquo;s latest short film (below), came across my desk not too long ago, and it is a 10 minute feast of fast footwork and fist-flying. According to the director, the project originally came about as a test to see how Panasonic&rsquo;s GH4 handles shooting in snow and rain. Martial artists Andrew Santin, Benjamin Zgorecki, Jedidiah J. Fabian, Jerry Sur, Kristina Michelle, Matthew Kane, and Keith Collins II were all up for the task &mdash; practicing 4 weeks in advance to get their choreography down. A Martial Arts Tango is a breezy, fun ride.The type of guerilla filmmaking that not only inspires, but also displays a disarming level of skill. Also, Wu&rsquo;s ability to make Ohio come off as a kick ass place to live deserves compliment. (Just kidding, Ohio&hellip;you know we love you.) Clickity-Click&hellip;</p>
