Movie Reviews

Some of the best fight choreography ever filmed!
morgoth | omaha, NE | 06/03/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Cassanova Wong stars as a man who runs his own escort service and goes insane when he loses a valuable jade horse. Yen Shi-kwan hired him for the job, but then doublecrosses him. The story is bad with unbearable comedy at times, so there are only 3 things to talk about that are worth going over.

#1- In the first major fight Cassanova Wong puts on a great kicking display in a restaurant.

#2- Eddy Ko has a good fight with Yen Shi-kwan.

#3- The finale is one of the best fight scenes in cinema history. So obviously it gets bonus points for that. Yen Shi-kwan is just on a totally different level. Only a few guys can match how deadly and fluent his movements are.


Crash Cinema DVD has good picture quality.
Makes Jackie Chan's old "kung-fu comedies" look high-brow!

"...But wow, the fight choreography! The action is VERY good in this film, and I laughed at Casanova Wong's "kung-fu master gone nuts" character a few times in spite of myself. THE MASTER STRIKES is full of familiar faces: besides Wong, there's Yen Shi-kwan, the villain from FEARLESS HYENA; Meng Yuen-man from DAGGERS 8; and even Eddy Kao Hung(who popped up in numerous early-to-mid-seventies chop-socky flicks). It's also fun to count how many times the same extra plays a different character in this film ;)
If you like kung-fu movies in the old style, you won't be disappointed in THE MASTER STRIKES."
Is it worth the time or money...NO

"this movie has a couple of saving graces: the subtitles translations are quite ridiculious, and also the "pole fighting". i swear to god this has the best pole fighting action ive ever seen (and i have seen a lot). yet the characters are annoying and after a while one may become frustrated at watching them. (Action good =30 mins) rest of the movie is just pure filler. the movie as i remember it was long as hell so that 30 minutes may not even be worth the whole experience."
