English term or phrase: chopsocky
Definition from Collins Dictionary:
A genre of martial arts film containing superfluous violence.

Example sentence(s):
  • You get a fair amount of bang for your kung fu buck: decent Fu-fights, the classic scenes of the chopsocky genre, wherein, inevitably, large crowds of Hawaiian shirt-clad men run into either a brothel or a restaurant and proceed to gesticulate wildly with kung fu territorial threat/dominance displays, and then one quietly heroic man of greater alpha dominance (who would always prefer to be left alone) runs amok among them and dominates them. The Epoch Times
  • From chopsocky Hong Kong martial arts movies to campy Bollywood of the '70s and '80s, Bala pours his adoration for the cinema he grew up on into this irreverent tribute. News 18
