Movie Reviews

Very nice.
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a solid Shaolin movie. Focusing on one man's transition into a kung-fu monk, this has great training scenes and cool scenes for Shaolin Temple buffs. Also, the Shaolin drunken monk in this movie is awesome! I don't know how he sneaks wine into that temple, though."
One of the best shaolin movies ever.

"This movie is one of the first joseph kuo movies that he directed. And up until 7 grandmasters, I thought he was digressing from this movie on. This is listed everywhere that it was made in 72. If this is true it was certainly the best movie around the time. Chinese connection is the only movie that could compare with this that is from that year. The fights in this movie are really intense. And while shen chan is not as good as jack long, I happen to like shen chan vs. mark long rather seeing brother vs. brother. Shen chan pulls out this backwards superman kick where he seems to elevate each one of his 3-4 kicks. There is so much power in this guy it is truly superhuman.

There are many other good martial artists in this, the end is a tad dissapointing, but only the VERY end, and hey, it's still a good scene.

I would like to take the time here to comment on the life of shen chan. In case you didn't know, he is also from shaolin vs. lama. Well he died at the age of 44. This was in 1984, and it really pisses me off that we all know how bruce died, we all know of fu shen, but nobody ever mentions shen chan. Just like the hybrid (sheng chiang) of five deadly venoms, who died about 5 years ago, shen chan and all the other movie martial artists need to be recognized. I know that shen chan had spent some time in jail from brawling and he might not have been that good of a guy, but he deserves the same respect as bruce or fu sheng got. I sincerely hope that they start going over the lives of these great movie martial artists. Ric meyers, aanybody?"
Get this and other Joseph Kuo movies

"I don't know why Joseph Kuo isn't more well known. He has directed some great kung fu films yet I barely read anything on him. Anyway, this movie features some great fights, Shaolin training sequences, and a cool villain. Buy this."

"This is a great one. One of the best in the collection. I have almost every one in The Shaolin & the Wu Tang Collections. This is hilarious, and has some off the wall stunts. They show what it's really like in the Shaolin Temple. Very factual."
