why do jacky chen and chinese do unrealistic jump kicks in kung fu movies?
because jumping and adding height (Z axiss) action to moving back and forward, left and right is eyecandy
this aplies to MMO/FPS/other netgame movies as well
watching 2 people standing eye to eye, bashing each other, especialy without skillfull dodging and deflecting is rather dull
It can be done, but it needs moar drawing skill, skill with camera, editting, etc.
