KFMG Podcast S04 Episode 49: End of Year Show 2019 with Mike Fury

Welcome to our annual, festive End of Year Show for 2019, featuring the Life of Action author and fight movie expert, Mike Fury. It has been another action-packed and diverse year for martial arts movies, from off-beat indie comedies (The Art of Self-Defense) to big Hollywood franchise-based actioners (Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum), not to mention the return of the traditional Hong Kong kung fu movie (Master Z, Ip Man 4). Scott Adkins went ballistic in Avengement; the world’s biggest martial arts stars squared off in Triple Threat; and Veronica Ngo turned in a star-making performance as a kick-ass mother hellbent on finding her daughter in Furie; but which film will come out on top?

Join us as we count down our personal top five martial arts films from the year, as well as reading out comments submitted by our listeners. We also talk about the worst martial arts films of the year, discuss the stories which hit the headlines, and highlight the movies we are most looking forward to in 2020. And – because it’s the festive season – we exchange a few film-related Christmas presents, and raise a toast to all the Fu followers around the world who have supported us over the years. This is the last in the current season of podcasts. Thank you for your continued support in 2019 and we wish you a very enjoyable, relaxing and happy holiday season. Mike Fury’s new book, Life of Action: Volume II, will be released in February 2020, and you can pre-order it right now.
