Don't believe me just watch - Asian action films

That’s the way it is. The fight is also in Asia. Sometimes literally, sometimes figuratively, spiritually, or almost reminding of a ballet. Here we have an unsettling short Vesuvius, created by an established Filipino director Erik Matti. After engaging in playful games in the forest, a Taiwanese creator Eden Chan decided to find out what happens, when he offers Two Peaches to three warriors. A Korean sci-fi and fantasy master Kim Geon fights against a monster in the docks in his Special Agent. Hadas Ben Aroya from Israel tells us a bit about growing up in Sex Doll and the same topic is alluded to in Bhutanese Dechen Roder’s 3 Years, 3 Months Retreat. Dance aspects of kung fu are covered in Oh! A Million Dollar Fist! made by Hung Cho and the dangers of sex with men using dangerous nicknames, right before action are highlighted in Tomohiko Iwasaki’s Crying Free Sex.
