Watched "The Protector 2" last night. While I loved the earlier Tony Jaa films this was just horrible. Horrible CGI, wires and Tony Jaa is moving much more slowly.

To clear my head of that I went to a matinee of "The Raid 2." It was even better the second time. CGI and wires can fuck right off, this is the real deal.

The majority of the time I'm definitely in the "no wire" camp, though I think it can be tastefully done on occasion. Some of my favorite jet li films use pretty gratuitous wire shots for instance. Also practical effects over cgi for sure. I have grown to appreciate the schlocky cgi though and think a combination of the two works best. With most anything it's what the artist does with the tools, not the tools themselves that ultimately determines the final product

Don't get me wrong, I love the creative use of wires in the older martial arts films. Jet Li can do no wrong as long as the films come from outside of Hollywood! I just find it shocking when someones earlier films were promoted as having no wires/CGI and were incredible but then they try to get all high tech and ruin everything.

The Raid 2 kept all of the good qualities of the first and turned it up to 11 so to speak. Brutal hits and falls, crazy motor vehicle wrecks, and it all manages to look real. While there was a lot less gunplay in the sequel the fight sequences more than made up for it. As far as I am concerned a new bar has been set for modern martial arts films and I don't think anything is going to top it except for possibly The Raid 3. That is unless they fuck up the franchise with CGI, wires and useless 3D.

The first half is definitely the best.
