What’s better than an Avengers homage? An Avengers homage via Bruce Lee, of course.

This clever fan film by YouTube geek channel BeatDownBoogie is an unabashed love song to badly dubbed martial arts films of the ’70s and ’80s, complete with awkward dialogue and cheesy battle taunts.

But the best part is that the fight choreography is real, and the actors actually know kung fu. Take that, Keanu.

Welp, that settles it. We expect epic martial arts sequences in Avengers: Civil War

We hope you’re listening, Joss Whedon.
