Everybody was kung-fu fighting!But they fought with expert timing!
Those cats were fast as lightning!
In fact it was a little bit frightening!
Chop Sockey is a rather disrespectful term, referring to fight scenes with an East Asian (especially Chinese, mostly Hong Kong) martial-arts style, but is often (see examples below) used to describe the whole genre of martial-arts films. They usually feature overly exaggerated and presentations of traditional fighting techniques, leading to dramatic sound effects, and sometimes questionable dialogue dubbing.
- Kung Fu Hustle
- Kung Pow! Enter the Fist, Steve Oedekirk's awesome tribute to martial arts flicks.
- Wayne's World 2, in a scene which has Wayne fight Cassandra's Cantonese father in a chop sockey kung fu fight. The stereotypical sound effects, dubbing and dubious wirework are all aped for the scene.
