Best wushu ever put in a movie....
Raffi R. Kamalian | 09/13/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)
"If you like wushu, get this movie. its amazing. a true test of the knowledge of a martial arts film fan is how they rate this movie. If you like actors pretending to be martial artists, being yanked around on strings with 2 second cuts, this movie is NOT for you.
if you like a movie full of REAL talented wushu athletes from China, with LONG fight sequences (upwards of 20-30 seconds! believe it or not!) demonstrating high difficulty moves... this movie is for you.
The story is a bit rudimentary, the dragon boating scenes are a bit boring (unless you're a huge dragon boat fan maybe) but that is what the Fast Forward button is for... its worth it for the fight scenes alone."
This is not South Shaolin Master
Sterling F. | New York, NY United States | 12/28/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)
"The reviews that identify this film as "South Shaolin Master" are incorrect. "Red Dragon of Shaolin" is actually a Taiwanese film called "Little Hero of Shaolin." It's a horrible movie with bad dubbing and terrible choreography. Don't get this thinking you'll get a movie of any quality. The second movie, Legend of the Tiger (aka Tiger Love) starring Stephen Tung is terrible a well. A poor martial arts flick that turns into an awful ghost story with a marauding tiger. Avoid this entire disc."

"This movie pretty much had it all. Don't expect some Godfrey Ho film. This one is for real martial arts fans. I put this movie right up there with Prodigal Son, of course not as good, I think that if the fight scenes were longer and gave me a little more sense of realism it would have definitely gotten 5 stars.
And the release from video asai is perfectlky widescreened and the picture isd FULLY remastered. English dub and UNCUT. This is really the one and only video asai release that I can highly recommned."
Amazing kung fu flick
A. Clary | 07/29/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)
"First off, I'd like to point out that I love acrobatic, wushu style of martial arts in movies. If you are the same way, you will absolutely love this movie.
Although the story is boring, it is far from annoying due to the fact that this movie obvously has a higher budget than most kung fu films of the time not starring Jackie Chan. It is a very easy film to watch, and the kung fu is spectacular.
Every person who performs martial arts in this movie is obvously very skilled at wushu, and the choreography is beautifully done.
