Movie Reviews

It's Practically A Liu Chia Liang Shaw Film!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Despite the obvious low budget production values in this film (all of which was shot on location), the film makes up for that with some awesome coreography by the Liu Brothers (Liu Chia Liang and Liu Chia Yung, who also directs). And the film stars Liu Chia Hui (credited as Liu Chia Fai for some reason) and Wang Yue. The bad guys include Chang Tao, Wilson Tong, and Hoi San Lee (?) - that guy who was the monk who fought San Te with the butterfly knives in Master Killer. The fight scenes are great (definitely of the quality seen in many of the Liu Chia Liang directed Shaw films of the late 70's and early 80's). The emphasis is on realism, so there isn't any crazy jumps or fancy wirework (no wirework at all).
He Has Nothing But Kung Fu - but you'll have nothing but a great time watching this one."
Expert blend of kung fu and comedy with Gordon Liu
Brian Camp | Bronx, NY | 11/26/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"HE HAS NOTHING BUT KUNG FU (1977) is an early combination of kung fu and comedy predating similar efforts by Sammo Hung and Jackie Chan. The kung fu is frequent and exciting and expertly staged by director Lau Kar Wing. The clever storyline balances the kung fu and humor with a dexterity not often achieved in the genre. Gordon Liu plays a wandering amnesiac who displays advanced kung fu skills when attacked. Wong Yue plays a con man who latches on to Gordon to use him in his schemes to get back at a local crime boss. Much to Wong's dismay, any money they acquire is immediately distributed by the fair-minded Gordon to the poor victims of the local racketeers. All this activity builds up to a sprawling final battle between the two heroes and the criminals amidst the ruins of an abandoned building.
In the middle of it all, Gordon's father, a famous admiral, shows up with great fanfare and demands that the local officials find his son. Little does he know that the corrupt officials are in league with the criminals and are actively trying to rub out the two heroes to stop them from giving away any more of the gang's money.While it lacks the spectacle of Shaw Bros. kung fu films and leaves the emphasis on martial arts technique to Sammo Hung's films, it does offer a concise package of witty writing, strong acting, lively supporting cast, and expert direction. The title may be awkward, although it aptly sums up the main character's situation, but nothing else about this unsung kung fu gem is. The two stars, Gordon Liu and Wong Yue, later re-teamed for DIRTY HO (1979)."
He has Nothing But Kung Fu (Well - that's all he needed)

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Loved it! Gordon Liu -what can I say - he has the moves! A few funny scenes. The plot was there all the way until the end! I can't say that about all Kung Fu flicks - some have none! This is a classic that's earned to be in my top 5% and one I can watch a few times over. Not only were the fighting scenes pretty good - it was well chorographed. Hey, I can see the talent in this movie!"
Gordon Lui's Kung Fu in this movie is great
Michael Meglasson | Fort Worth, TX United States | 05/22/2004

"This is my second Gordon Liu Movie to see and I was a little disapoited in him when I saw Shaolin Drunken Monk but in this move he is great. My only complaint about this movie is nobody is as dumb as the charcters in this move. There are many things that are so obvious that they don't figure out. If you can get past that the rest of the story and the Kung fu are great."
