Matt B. from GETZVILLE, NY
Reviewed on 1/26/2012...
Jackie Chan appears only at the very beginning in which with a backdrop of pinks and reds out of a Simpsons episode, he demonstrates amazing moves. His role was to co-ordinate the fights, which are the best thing this two-star kung-fu movie has going for it.

The plot is the standard weakling orphan boy must avenge his murdered parents and protect his foxy sister and ungrateful townsmen so he must learn martial arts. A corrupt monk and a beggar-drunken master take him under their flowing robes and teach him a variety a styles so that he can be ready to deliver smack to whomever he fights.
Strung together with a minimum of exposition, the fight scenes are good.

Still, if orphan, hot gentle sister, drunken master and chortling bad guys sound ho-hum, it’s because they are the stuff of custom. The mugging, slapstick and visual gags are on the level of silent movies. The scene where the corrupt master’s eyes bob up and down while ogling a prostitute’s jiggling bosoms is about par for funny, but in a funny-lame way, like jokes in Jackass. The music we’ve heard before, even down to the ‘wah-wah’ sound effect.

In conclusion, this is one for fans that like productions from the 1970s or Jackie Chan completists.

RIP OFF... BEWARE OF THIS FILM
Christopher J. Deasy | Depends on the time of year | 08/12/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"As some of the other viewers have already noted... this film does not star Jackie Chan (however, he did direct it). The movie is actually pretty good- but I am here to tell you that this (Brentwood Home Video) copy is horrible. You can even see people walking in front the screen during certain parts- the images are cut off due to it being filmed directly from a TV screen. Vintage Video released the same film in "Jackie Chan- Triple Punch Collection". The box set is cheap and the transfer is actually a trasfer- not a video of a TV screen. The quality is still low, but acceptable considering it is not digitally remastered. It is ashame that Amazon carries Brentwood- they should rethink carrying such a shady company. (Just so you know- the triple punch is not that great of a deal, the second movie "fantasy mission" is ridiculously poor by any standards).

All the above aside- the film should get some credit- it is not the fault of Hua Chen that his movie was pirated and deviously marketed. The movie IS good, the surrounding context is what makes this a rip off."
A waste of money for Jackie Chan fans

"Jackie Chan has a cameo role.
print is poor and the dubbing awful.the DVD however contains good add on features like a trivia game and a DVD dictionary giving details on dvd features, etc.
good buy only for the dictionary."
