Movie Reviews

A classic known by another name.

"Also known as Wu Tang & Ninja, this film stars Alexander Lo Rei as a young student of shaolin caught up in a plan set by The Wu Tang high Priest and a group of japanese ninja to take over Shaolin temple. Through Rigorous training he tones his skills to where he thinks he can match the Ninja. and if he is lucky enough to make it alive through that he still must fight the white haird priest. Can you guess where his weak point is?A very good film. Lo rei shows off why he is considered one of the best fist fighters. Great Ninja tricks and fighting styles. An all around good film, and actually a little better quality to."

"Not that many movies,especailly martial art movies,that has a villian that takes two generations to defeat. basically the movie is about the villian,abbot white's,quest to destroy the shaolin temple. While doing so he sides himself with three japanese ninjas who control an army of ninjas. armed with iron skin & the ability to make people explode/implode just by pointing at them. attempts to destroy the temple. You have to see the method of which he maintains his iron skin. I could describe it but it's best for you to see"
Action packed, over the top, old school buttkicking.

"This is a really fun movie. It is quite cheezy, 70's style kung fu with terrible dubbing but if you don't take it too seriously (the movie does not take itself seriously) you will really enjoy it. Hardly a minute passes without either some crazy kung fu action or some unbelievably bad acting, costumes, or hair to make you laugh. There is actually quite a bit of impressive movie style kung fu here, but the real joy of this movie is the campy old school attitude. Recommended, especially if you are going to watch with friends who also enjoy this sort of thing."

"This is one to remember. The training is excellent. Two brothers are determing to master the shaolin iron finger to beat the taoist who is training in internal power."
