Word for giving Jim Kelly his due. Most kung fu types don't dig him, for some reason (maybe because he's so wooden), but he has some notable moments. My fave is Three The Hard Way (in which he's named "Mister" Keyes, which I believe is due to his momma wanting him to always get some respect) - Kelly plants a foot in the faces of three dudes at once, and the camera overcranks the action so it seems like he's almost bionic. Damn.


Right on... I always loved this dude. In high school my friends and I would make an occasion out of watching "Black Belt Jones." Plus, you can't fuck with that line, "No thanks, Mr. Han-man. I'll be too busy looking good"...
