(4 out of 5 stars)
"This Collection contains three movies
The first "Adventure for Imperial Treasures" stars Wang Tao
as Lee Shou Ching the son of an architect Lee Lin who in turn is the last person still alive with the knowledge of the wherabouts
of a huge treasure. Years earlier Lee Lin escaped death at the
hands of an evil master named Feng Kei. Feng Kei and his men
eventually find and kill Lee Lin though - which sends Lee Shou
Ching on a mission of revenge - First learning beggar fist from
a helpful beggar then learning secret kung fu techniques from a
monk all the while looking for his lost sister and knowing that
a showdown with Feng Kei is inevitable. very good 4 star movie
In my opinion.
The second movie is "Fatal Flying Guillotines" starring Chen Sing
and Carter Wong. Chen Sing plays a kung fu expert Wu who has
mastered the Guillotines - he became ill when young and had to
abandon his wife and son. He becomes sort of an evil recluse in
a vaporous valley - while being courted to work for an evil
prince and being hunted down by monks. Carter Wong plays his
son- who was never told his fathers name and goes into action
against the old man after being given a false cure for his mother
(which results in her death). A solid movie but I did not enjoy
as much as the other two. A solid 3-4 star movie in my opinion.
Movie 3 is "Instant Kung Fu Man" starring Hwang Jang Lee and John Liu among others. This movie is a tale of two brothers
twins Hsiao Fu(a somewhat evil kung fu master and criminal) and
his bumbling but intelligent brother Hsiao Hu (knows very little
kung fu and is the opposite of his brother) Hsiao Fu sends his
brother Hsiao Hu to the Shaolin temple to learn kung fu.
Hsiao Hu after three years has not learned anything so he tricks
the monks into letting him leave - the monks discover his trickery and send a top monk John Liu to bring him back.
Hsiao Hu gets into all kinds of trouble and has to constantly
pose as his brother - which in turn gets his brothers enemy
played by Hwang Jang Lee on his trail and leads to an eventual
showdown. a Very Good 4-5 star movie in my opinion. I especially
enjoyed the fight scenes which pitted John Liu against Hwang
Jang Lee(two of the best leg fighters in Kung Fu Movie history).
Overall a very good three movie set and much better than the
vol.2 collection of the same name.
