Movie Reviews

More forgiveness, less aggression
Michael W. Jaworski | Fairfield, NJ USA | 01/14/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Definitely deserves five stars. Liu Chia-Liang (Lau Kar-Leung)'s second directorial feature is amazing, it's also one of the few films where all three Liu brothers are in it. I would probably rank this as my third favorite Liu Chia-Liang film; right below my all-time fave "The 36th Chamber of Shaolin" & "Heroes of the East." Great fu (the weapons used in the film were real) especially the fights between the Liu brothers, and a bunch of cameos. Tokyo Shock did a fabulous job restoring this gem; remastered, widescreen, well done subtitles and your choice of audio (Mandarin, Cantonese & English). The interview with Chen Kuan-Tai was awesome & informative. Although the whole movie is great; for me, the meat of the movie is the teacher/student relationship between Chen Kuan-Tai & Gordon Liu. I've seen plenty of martial arts pictures (just check out my reviews), but I've never seen that teacher/student aspect done with more emotion and heartfelt sincerity; "More forgiveness, less aggression." (quote from the subtitled track)."

"This is an awesome kung fu movie with a classic premise. Gordon Liu is totally amazing as usual. The quality of the movie is really good - its been digitally remastered - awesome picture compared to some kung fu movies."
Right on morgoth !!!

"You nailed it. Those Chen Kuan Tai inspirational speeches are awesome in this film and coming from Chen Kuan Tai, you know it! My favorite from him is the last one he delivers to Gordon Liu, " Hung Fei, not only are you skilled at kung fu you have the right humility. This virtue is much more important than kung fu excellence. When you've beaten your opponent, you've only beaten him in a physical match, but if you can win that man's heart... well then. That is the way real kung fu should be, forgive men and forbear! Hung Fei, never forget your humility and kindness. Awesome english dubbs. Also that showdown between Liu Chia Liang and Liu Chia Yung is priceless in it's own right!"
