Movie Reviews

Poor, Poor DVD quality.
The Good Doctor | Wilmington, DE United States | 01/21/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Let me say that this is a terrible re-print of this movie. It looks like it was transferred from a bootleg VHS tape. It is cropped on all four corners and the colors are bleeding everywhere. This "insta-action" also is the biggest joke i have seen. It makes the whole DVD skip to certain scenes and you don't know what is going on. It is a shame these classic movies are only getting re-mastered in Asia and not encoded for DVD players over here. Whatever you do, stay away from this edition of this movie."

"When you see a Yuen Woo Ping film, you can pretty much gaurantee that it will be entertaining. At least the fight scenes are. I actually have owned this film for about 6 years now on VHS, and the movie is good, but it can get corney at times (like the singing in the bank?!.) But all in all a pretty decient martial arts film. Sam the Seed plays the usual character, like in Drunkin Master and does a good job, even though it's noticalble that he is not doing the more difficult moves. Watch for when Sam the Seed and Crazy Legs are drinking tea together! To me, It was the highlight of the film. Very good choreography, thanks to Woo Ping, who is one of the most talented martial arts choreographer and director. The firmiliarness of the characters, the cornyness, the slow martial arts sequences, and the unfunny comedy make it an OK martial arts film. Apart from the tea drinking sequence, the film is nothing spectacular."
