Take the Bill Murray classic Groundhog Day, add a generous helping of 1980s Hong Kong martial arts action comedy, top it off with a dash of California Bay Area flavor, and you’ll get Rope-A-Dope. I was lucky enough to work on this short two years ago, after which is won a plethora of awards in the indie film circuit, including the Audience Choice Award at Sundial 2014 and the Kickass Original Film Award from the LA Indie Film Festival 2013.
Well, the gang is back in town with the sequel, Rope-A-Dope 2: The Return of the Martial Arts Mafia! With help from all our awesome friends at The Stunt People, We Are Scandinavia, and plenty of others, we are proud to finally release the latest entry in the Stunt People’s long history of awesome martial arts action. The fights are bigger, the laughs are louder, and my hair is greasier than ever before! I can assure you that Eric and Dennis pulled out all the stops for this one, and it is hands down one going to be the best fight you've seen this year. Watch it. Love it. Share it. Repeat. This is what American action cinema could be.
