Movie Clichés ... Fencing/Swordplay


  • At some point in a duel, the hero and villain will cross swords at face level, allowing them to grip each other's weapon while making nasty/sarcastic comments before they break the clinch and continue fighting. Why doesn't anyone just ram the sword guard into their opponent's face, stun him, and then finish him off?
  • If the hero and villain's swords cross at or below waist level, they will break the clinch, fall back, and pause -- despite the fact that a simple upthrust into the opponent's belly after the break would end the duel right there and then.
  • If there is a candelabra, the villain will show how talented he is with a sword by cutting the candles and watching them fall over; the hero will do the same but the candles won't fall until  after the villain has made a comment about the hero's lack of fencing ability, at which point the hero will topple the cut candles, showing that he is more skilled than the villain because his candles didn't fall over from the force of the cut.
  • During a duel, the hero will jump or climb onto a table/bench/piano/platform that raises him above the villain. At that point, the villain will swipe at the hero's legs, which the hero avoids by jumping up in the air over the villain's blade. Very rarely, the positions are reversed.

Shanghai Railway Station



Shanghai Railway Station is the main railway station in Shanghai. It is one of the top class railway stations in China. Its passenger traffic is heaviest at all railway stations in Shanghai.

The station is located on Moling Road, Zhabei District, to the North of the city centre. It is governed by Shanghai Railway Bureau and is one of the most important hubs of the railway network in China. Shanghai Railway Station is called "The New Railway Station" by locals since it replaced Shanghai North Railway Station (also known as "Old North Railway Station" by locals) as the city's main train station in 1987.


In June 2008, in order to co-operate with the opening of World Expo Shanghai 2010, Shanghai Government and Zhabei District carried out a new renovation called the "Shanghai Railway Station North Plaza Comprehensive Transportation Hub Project" with a total investment over 4.1 billion RMB.

On May 29, 2010, the renovation was completed. It expanded the north building from 1,000 square meters to 15,560 square metres, refurbished the south building and added a new designed wave-shaped roof over the platform.
