Choose and focus on at least three films from the above lists, or from relevant films that are analyzed in your textbook Planet Hong Kong written by Professor David Bordwell. The three films should be directed by three different directors and feature three different stars. Discuss and compare the generic characteristics and historical evolution of Hong Kong martial arts films and action films in terms of theme, plot, and/or style. The minimum length of the paper should be 5 full pages, double-space, font size 12 (preferred script: Times New Roman). If you wish to choose any film from outside the above lists, please let me know first. You should not write about the films of one particular star or director only.
Avoid simple generalization. Please refer to specific elements and details of the films. You might wish to consider such formal and stylistic features: characters, stars, scenes, choreography, cinematography, editing, lighting, sound, music, or pacing (rhythm). You may consult assigned reading materials, or do some additional research outside the class. Please always acknowledge your sources. Do not use the words and ideas of a publication or online source without appropriate citations.
