Example text

Like Yau’s criticism of the James Bond films, some scholars talk about the triumph of special effects over the male hero in Tsui’s early 1990s wuxia work. For instance, Ackbar Abbas (1997) argues that the real heroes here are not kung fu stars, but special effects. Based on his observation of the gradual disappearance of muscular bodies in Hong Kong popular culture from the realistic kung fu films inaugurated by Bruce Lee to Tsui Hark’s new wuxia films starring Jet Li, Kwai-cheung Lo concludes that ‘no body’ exists in ‘excessive technical prowess, over-rapid editing, breakneck-speed narration and video-game-like cinematography’ (2004: 122), and the muscle men are simply support props for the intensive effects work.

While I do not intend to deny the possible impact of particular social and psychological contexts on new wuxia cinema, I think that this somewhat clichéd reading not only disguises the rich themes and forms that new wuxia cinema has created, but also precludes the abundant reading possibilities provided for its audiences by new wuxia texts. Instead, I would like to draw attention to the ways in which new wuxia films redefine the wuxia genre and reconstruct wuxia masculinity. In the rest of this chapter, I examine three salient traits of new wuxia films, which distinguish them from previous wuxia films, that is, their parodic and hysterical textual nature, the technology-based, exaggerated visual spectacle they provide, and their fascination with gender-bending and cross-dressing.

If the writings of critics and columnists cannot be equated with the opinions of ‘actual viewers’, empirical audience research is similarly unable to offer a reliable access to ‘real audiences’ because respondents’ personal investments and researchers’ mediations and distortions always exist. Mark Jancovich uses Ien Ang’s work on Dallas as an example to demonstrate the importance of distinguishing between the activity of consuming films and the activity of talking about them. Jancovich reminds us that when people wrote to Ang about their reaction to the television series, they were fully aware that their opinion would be judged by others, thereby consciously relating their talk to a public discourse, and ‘the ideology of mass culture’ (2001: 154).
