City of Violence
Darren found this one.
After watching and doing some research I discovered that I had two of the directors films in the vault!
Terrific nonstop action. It stars the director and the action choreographer, in a nearly nonstop ballet of action. This is a Korean film, from guys that have watched Hong Kong, Japanese and Thai martial arts...
We can probably thank Jackie Chan and Tony Jaa for the enthusiasm and hardcore martial arts on display here. My favorite scene involves a group of street B Boys, a baseball team, a bunch of lethal schoolgirls and a painting crew -- against our heroes..
Bottom line is simple: you like physical action shot without the hecticam? You have to go overseas.
