I'm asking b/c I've read the gun fu wiki and it omits key references.

Clearly John Woo is the spiritual father, but his use of "balletic gunplay" is not what is meant by this term, which has recently been most notable explicated in the John Wick films.

("Gun fu" properly refers to use of guns in hand to hand combat. The early mention in the game Cyberpunk predates the contemporary choreography to this the term has been recently applied.)

  • Not sure if it’s the first, but I feel like the peak might have been Equilibrium. Also called “gun kata”. – Todd Wilcox Oct 17 at 0:04
