Movie Reviews

Good to add to Collection !
Pam-Ado | Coral Gables, FL United States | 06/13/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is in widescreen witch is good. The picture quallity could have been better but it's 10 times better than alot of other flicks that cost 10-25 dollors and it's worth buying for [this price].The old jappanese guy who fights Jet Li blinde folded in FIST OF LEGEND is in this movie, of corse 30 yrs younger. I think this movie is about FONG SAI YUK but it dosen't say it on the box. In the flick the main character's name is Fong siu Yi, don't know if there is two ways of saying the name but some one reading this will know."
A nice gem to add to your collection

"This is a nice little movie to add to the collection if you are a fan of the older style martial arts films as I am. Definitely a bargain and not a waste of a few bucks. A similar plot seen before featuring revenge. A guy repeatedly goes after the martial arts masters who pretty much cripple him each time he attacks them. What's weird about this one is you're kinda glad the punk keeps getting his butt kicked and has to be taken home in a wheel barrow. You kinda root for the masters who always let him off by not killing him. He did after all kill a student of the masters. :)"
Above average at best

"This is a fairly enjoyable old-school kung fu flick with a story similar to Fists of the White Lotus(guy gets repeatedly beaten by the villain until his repeated training helps him eventually to defeat his enemy). The lead is fine, but the fights are a little on the slow side, which is expected from an early 70's movie. The dvd has a nice widescreen transfer, a Casper cartoon short(don't know why either), short trivia game and dvd dictionary. Overall not a great movie or extras, but if you're a die-hard collector(and at this price with really good dvd picture quality) you might still want to pick it up. btw, the reviewer from CA a couple reviews back is obviously reviewing something else."
Fong Si Yu strikes again in noteworthy kung fu adventure
Brian Camp | Bronx, NY | 08/11/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"THE PRODIGAL BOXER is an above-average kung fu movie about Chinese folk hero Fong Sai Yuk (aka Fong Si Yu), the subject of dozens of Hong Kong kung fu films. Here the role is played by the underrated Meng Fei as a callow, unschooled youth whose attempts to avenge the death of his father result in his being badly beaten. His martial artist mother puts him through rigorous training and an herbal bath that makes him invulnerable, setting the stage for a final battle with the Iron Fist brothers, played by formidable kung fu villains Yasuaki Kurata and Wang Ching. The available tape/DVD is made from a beautiful wide-screen print, flawlessly transferred in all its letter-boxed glory. The film itself is quite good-looking with excellent cinematography and action staged on lavish indoor sets and sprawling outdoor vistas (rare in Hong Kong kung fu films). It also includes the film's original Chinese music score and boasts above-average English-dubbing. The film is also known as KUNG FU: PUNCH OF DEATH."
