"There's a masked killer on the loose and and he is killing all of the martial worlds top fighters. Steve Tung Wei plays a young man who must go to learn kung fu to revenge his father after he is killed. Don Wong Tao also has a revenge driven role.
This is an average kung fu movie, with a few nice touches that help it standout from the rest. Tung Wei is taught by a monk who sits on a small round padded seat. If Tung Wei can move the monk and sit on the seat himself then he has passed his training. This is one of my favorite training scenes of alltime. Tung Wei is flawless with his movements and has some very good acrobatic skills. But not to be outshined is Wong Tao. He gives a great performance in all of his fights. The movie also stars Choi Wang and Chen Sing.
None of the fights are great, but they are still worth watching
Picture quality is a bit above average and its widescreen."
Very Good Kung fu classic, but....

"This is an entertaining Kung fu flick, but it has allot of scratches and lines throughout the movie. I've seen older kung fu flicks in better condition. There was no effort in remastering it. This is the only copy of MASK OF DEATH on DVD right now so if you really want it just be aware of the condition of it.
