"This is my favorite wu tang movie along side Lord of the Wu tang.The fighting may be a bit slow but really amazed me because you could tell that there was no increase in film speed or trick wiring for the fights.Yu Rong Guang (Iron Monkey) plays an ex Wutang student who is given the privelage of becoming a priest of one of the shaolin temples by the royal guards of the gov't so he can succeed the old abbot of the shaolin.This one I particularly liked for the story line and some more realistic but very interresting fights."

"OK, not the best in the world, but worth the purchase. Tons of silly dialogue, corny intros to the main characters (wait'll you see the stunt 'horse riding' antics), but the fight scenes are strong; extended in length, and choreographed very well. The finale is gritty, but without a lot of excessive melodrama. All in all, pretty good, but only when you have the extra bucks."

"This is a great kung-fu flick. Plenty of action, decent storyline, and fun fight scenes. If the old kung-fu movies are somthing you like, you'll be entertained by this one.
What sets this movie apart from many other movies of this genre are the fantastic views of the Chinese countryside. Seriously, some of the settings for the action of this film are just amazing.
No, it isn't as good as the first movie with Gordon Liu, but how many martial arts movies are? Buy this movie already."
Great Martial Arts film
