Movie Reviews

King of the leg fighters at his best
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Hwang Jang Lee is by far the greatest leg fighter in the history of Martial Arts Movies. He has played some the best villains in this genre. You may remember him as Rubber legs in Drunken Master, Silver Fox in Secret Rivals and Shan Kuan Yung in Snake in the Eagles Shadow. What has always amazed me and to a certain degree dismayed me that he always demonstrated greater skill than that of the protagonist he was pitted against. So much so that I always had a hard time beleiving that he could lose in the end. That is what I love about this movie as the hero he finally gets to live in the end. His skills are showcased wonderfully in this movie especially in the final battle. What this man could do with his legs was amazing, he could parry, block and and lock a opponent with his legs. Jet li fans should watch Hwang Jang Lee do his version of the " no shadow kick" without the help of wires."
Hwang Jang Lee at his best

"This movie is awsome. One of the world most fearsome kickers shows his stuff. I was impressed and amazed at the skill of this man"
To quote the back of the DVD... this "is one Buddha-tastic K

"An absolute must for fans of the great Hwang Jang Lee(and how can you not be?), Hit Man In The Hand Of Buddha is possibly the "king of the superkickers" finest moment... oddly enough though, it's due more in part to the amount of his screen time rather then the actual movie itself. The film features plenty of the usual trappings of martial arts cinema from the era(most notably the protagonist being beaten and nearly killed before heading to the Shaolin temple for training before the inevitable rematch), but what really makes this film such a joy is seeing Hwang in the role of hero for once. Up until this point(and ever since I believe?) he had only played the part of villian(most notably in The Drunken Master, Secret Rivals 1 and 2, and Snake In The Eagles Shadow) to which the opposing lead could always expect a near battle to the death from. So all it took for Hwang to finally get the role as a good guy... write, direct, and produce his own film of course(?!). The fact that he's a tad unconvincing in the role(although he does lose his trademark mustache... oh, you didn't know facial hair was evil? LOL!) isn't the important thing, the important thig is that it's a complete movie revolving aroung Hwang Jang Lee with every fight featuring him doing what he does best... booting goons in the head! An excellent cast(including Eddy Ko, Tino Wong, and Mei Sheng Fan), great musical score, plenty of old school intricate choreography, and Hwang as a hero make this a true gem of any self-respecting Kung Fu fans collection. The DVD from Tai Seng is typical... full-screen and featuring no special features or original language/subtitle options, though the picture is actually pretty clean and the vocal dub track is solid as well."
