"I mean they pulled like every shaw's character actor there ever was in this movie. I think Ku feng was the only one I didn't see. And sadly the story is easy to follow, but I got absolutely nothing out of this film. Wait a sec, the final fight was like 8 minutes long, and Hwang Jang Lee gives a good leg display. But the hero of this movie just absolutely ruins it. His form is the worst I have ever seen. I had to laugh out loud a couple times, I just couldn't help it. Hwang will pull out his eagle claw(same as devil claw from hell's windstaff), and then the kis with his eagle's fist is just way too sorry to look at. But then when he fights he is just so slow, I honestly can't recommend this movie to ANYBODY. I have a list of good kung fu movies. And Tai seng releases like "my 12 Kung Fu Kicks", "Inheritor of Kung Fu", and now "the Eagle's Killer" freaking suck. If you are only looking for these cheap tai seng movie then check out "the victim" or "Ninja Checkmate".
The story really isn't worth going over. It starts out just like drunken master and it probably would have been better if tehy tried to make the exact same movie. With all these great character actors, I figure this movie was wrapped up by the second day of shooting.
Same old tai seng trailers, but you will kind of like them if it is your first time watching the tai seng's "martial arts theater" releases. Full screened as always and very watchable picture. But to further elaborate on the badness of this--I just watched "bolo the brute" the movie that bolo yeung(yang sze)diercted and starred in, and that piece kung fu kicked this movie up and down. If Hwang wasn't in it, there wouldn't have been a movie at all."
