"Born Invincible must be the most underrated kung fu flick. Kung fu fans never mention this one with the other great classics. This movie is a true old school classic. It has "great fighting" scenes..many of them. It is hilarious. You will laugh every time you hear Carter Wong (who is the tai chi master) speak. Years of training tai chi made his hair white and voice high pitch. He also laughs every time he kills someone. Born invincible has every thing you like in old school kung fu... easily 5 STARS!!!!
$ well spend!"
Lots of choppy editing mars an otherwise worthwhile film.

"This film features some great talent ranging from director Joseph Kuo to action brothers Jack and Mark Long to Carter Wong in one of his more memorable roles. "But still..." there is AN AWFUL LOT OF CHOPPY EDITING during the fight scenes that really mars the film. This type of jump cutting (the pulling out of frames to speed up the action) is very distracting, and one would think completely unneccessary considering the cast involved. It's a shame, as this could have been one of the all-time greats, but the editing flaws simply cannot be ignored. As it is, the characters and story, along with some untampered action, balance things out just enough to still make BORN INVINCIBLE a pretty entertaining martial arts movie. In fact some still do consider it a classic. Maybe, you'll be one of them. Recommended-flaws and all."
An epic martail arts piece!!

"Carter Wong is amazing as the invincible Tai Chi master. He wallops all his opponents, and as if that was not enough, he draws a symbol with his leg when fighting. Lo Lieh is his colleague and they are trying to wipe out a martial arts school led by Jack Long & Mark Long. The fight scenes were quite decent, but I did not like the way it ended. The good guys were by far no match for the bad guys. This is definitely a movie to keep for any wutang afficionado. Also check out Carter Wong in 18 bronzemen."
This is a Karate Movie fan's delight.

"Born Invincible with Master Lo Lieh (5 Fingers of Death) and Master Carter Wong (18 Bronze Men) was Superb! This movie had you rooting for the bad guys (Lieh and Wong) because they were so highly skilled. A Must See for any true fan. Wong was absolutely incredible. The footwork and style was first rate. Rivals Master Lui Chia Hui and Jet Li's technique."
