Those cats were fast as lightning!
In fact it was a little bit frightening!
But they fought with expert timing!
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 over exaggerated presentations of traditional fighting techniques, dramatic sound effects, and sometimes questionable dialogue dubbing.
Parody examples include:
- 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.
- Kickin' It alludes to Bobby Wasabi's movies as being this.
- Kill Bill Volume 2 has a Deleted Scene in this style which has Bill facing off against the former student of a guy he killed and his handful of mooks.
