Subject: I have found a DVD that I think you would enjoy
|Five Kung Fu Daredevil Heroes|
Actors: Meng Fei, Lo Lieh, Leung Ka Yan
Director: San Kong
Genres: Action & Adventure, Indie & Art House, Sports
An all-star cast including Liu Chia Yen (Thundering Mantis, Sleeping Fist) Lo Lien (5 Fingers of Death) and an awesome array of kung fu superstars. This is the kind of blockbuster fans crave and collect.
Great cast in a horrible movie

"This is your average kung fu movie with a mangled up story. Leung Kar Yan (Thundering Mantis) and Meng Fei (Kung Fu - The Punch of Death) are protecting a high government official. Trying to kill the official is Kam Kong (the Master of the Flying Guillotine), Phillip Ko (Invincible Pole Fighter), and another guy. They are a funny trio. Phillip Ko is a Tibetan Lama, Kam Kong is a Mongolian, and the other guy is a Muslim. Helping them out is a masked man played by Yu Tien Lung (the villain from Snake-Crane Secret). The legendary Lo Lieh also has a role and Yueh Hua has a small part.
Basically the story involves traitors and a lot of assassination attempts. There is also a Russian army causing trouble.
The fighting is only average which is kind of a shame with all these great stars on hand. There is plenty of action but it doesn't get good until the final fight. All of these actors have had much better performances.
Picture quality on the Videoasia DVD is decent."

"I have always been a fan of Leung Kar Yan and his fighting style but here he only fights at the end of the movie, this film has a lot of big stars in it like Lo Lieh, Fei Meng, Phillip Ko,and Kam Kong. But I found the action not to be well choragraphed."
