Not the 'classic' I had expected

"Maybe I was expecting too much, but this was just a touch above average. It starts out incredibly with two Kung Fu experts composing a poem. The dialogue is humorous yet profound... then in walks a man with a metal hand who spars with another student, followed by an excellent fight between a Shaolin Monk and a random henchman (at this point I'm thinking "THIS IS GREAT"). Unfortunately neither the storyline nor the excellent gong fu of Golden Fox was enough to carry this movie to the classic level. The fighting receives a 5 star rating and IS a must have for any serious collection- BUT there is nothing else outstanding about this film. It actually reminds me of a toned down version of a much better film, Invincible Armour (a true classic).
PS- the audio is horrid!!! I had to turn my TV up all the way to hear the words only to have to turn it way down in other parts because of wild fluctuation in the sounds... it was good exercise though."

"This movie is the joint! Much better than part 1. Stars 2 of the industries' best leg men, John Liu Chung Liang & Whang Jang Lee. Also being sold as, Silver Fox Rivals 2. This version edited. Stay away."

"You never know what you are gonna get with this guy. He only directed my favorite movie ever---legend of a fighter. He also choreographed one of the worst movies---from china with death. I liked the 1st secret rivals much better and the guy who replaced don wong tao really ruined it for me. There is just too many stupid things that happened in this movie. I seriously wonder if Godfrey Ho took part in the writing of this movie."
