Gun Kata

I have been watching the movie Ultraviolet recently and I was so happy to see the return of "Gun Kata", first seen in the movie Equilibrium. I was discussing this with Uncle De and I was surprised he didn't know what Gun Kata mean! I suspect many people don't as well thus this post.


Gun Kata is a firearm based martial arts with emphasis on two principles: shooting the enemy as efficiently as possible, and avoiding return fire.
"Through analysis of thousands of recorded gunfights, the Cleric has determined that the geometric distribution of antagonists in any gun battle is a statistically-predictable element. The Gun Kata treats the gun as a total weapon, each fluid position representing a maximum kill zone, inflicting maximum damage on the maximum number of opponents, while keeping the defender clear of the statistically-traditional trajectories of return fire. By the rote mastery of this art, your firing efficiency will rise by no less than 120%. The difference of a 63% increased lethal proficiency makes the master of the Gun Katas an adversary not to be taken lightly."

Gun Kata in action:



By the way Equilibrium is a good movie, worth watching especially for the Gun Katas.

ps
Sorry for this geeky, slightly sad post.

Ultra Violet was... boring.. I kept on wondering when the movie would end.. in the end I put it at double speed enjoying the actors talk like chipmunks.. makes the dialogue a whole lot.... cooler...

dude
ultraviolet okay, it is extremely derivative. I was instantly reminded of Resident Evil, Blade, Aeon Flux, Equilibrium and Matrix, to name a few movies blatantly pliagarised.

however, you can't deny it's very stylish (Uzi swords man, Uzi SWORDS! Can't get cooler than Uzi swords. Another thing is how the costume and hair changes colour. and the gun katas).

to me, derivative, but watchably so :) Caution: may kill a few braincells & a tiny bit of your soul!

Creepy but beautifully executed moves.

This line: 'Through analysis of thousands of recorded gunfights, the Cleric has determined that the geometric distribution of antagonists in any gun battle is a statistically-predictable element.'

...made me think of Hari Seldon of the Foundation Series, where he uses statistics to predict humanity's behavioural patterns.

Never heard of either movies before. The guy looks like an acerbic version of Clark Kent. Wachiaaaa!
