Movie Reviews

You won't be dissappointed
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a very entertaining film from beginning to end.
Surprisingly enough, the story is as good as the actual fighting.
And the fighting scenes are definitely above average. The only reason I don't give it 5 Stars is because the "chicken" scenes
were annoying and the other villains were not impressive(to me).
For those Wu Tang Clan music audio sample is taken form this movie. "...The special technique of Shadow Boxing..."
I can't remember the exact quote but the guy who says it is the main reason you should buy this DVD. And according to the biography section of the DVD, the villain is a real life bad ass and has done prison time for fighting in real life.
Most fighting styles are represented in this movie:
Snake, butterfly, eagle claw, tiger fist, mantis, drunken style (2 secs worth) etc. etc. you have to watch closely for them.
Three words overall...get this movie."

"" If I had not given it 5 stars, I would regard myself as an idiot!"

I came across this movie in a video store and had to get the DVD to add to my collection! The dubbing is beautifully done, and transfer to DVD id very good. FULL screen but hey, it's a great movie.

This movie is classic kung Fu. It has a great story and excellent fight scenes. There is drama, comedy, philosophy and it really gets the adrenaline pumping. A great blend of action with many, many kung fu styles.

"Allow me to demonstrate the skill of Shao-lin, the special technique of Shadow boxing!" Oh.. what a joy! No WIRES like today's so called stars. Yes, some trampoline is done but it is minimal, occurring in one or two of the countless scenes and does not take away from the fight scenes!

"loooky here.. Look who has become a Shaolin monk.. Are you ready to die now?" Then begins a pure attack that is unstoppable!

The villain's skill is breathtaking! If you know anything about fighting then you can see that this guy means business. He attacks with a series of blows, chops, kicks and punches to the vital organs in one smooth continuous movement which gives almost no chance to the opponent...PURE attack! Beautiful!

You will see many styles here tiger, snake, mantis, butterfly fist, monkey, sword techniques, Bhudda finger, drunken boxing...

Our hero is out if his depth.. His master tells him " Your kung fu is still poor- you won't last long out side!" J Ah.. the comedy!

Then the final encounter- masterly!

Thoroughly enjoyable. I watch it over and over... it is that good!
The best classic Kung fu ever

"I love this movie for its fighting styles and funny dialogue. Even though it was made somewhat 30-40 years ago, it is still worth every penny today. My father owns this on VH-1 with others and I had to add this to my DVD collection. If your and old school martial arts movie fan, I recommend this movie!"
