information on packaging is false; wang yu kung fu is true
22 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

note - the information on some packages for this film is frequently false - not this film's cast, not its crew, not its international release title.

'screaming tiger' - written, directed, and starring wang yu, along with what was, at the time, his ensemble cast and crew, who worked with him on many other films of the period.

ej's kung-fu capsule review for films of the chop-socky old-school - 1. basic plot type - revenge; school vs. school; ethnic conflicts; buddhist message 2. plot construction - standard English-version pretty badly chopped up; but what is there is actually well-constructed, if occasionally derivative 3. dramatic - yes 4. funny - occasionally; marvelous moment when wang yu finds himself surrounded by 20 thugs and, without a word, smiles and shrugs, and just starts tossing them around 5. dialog - good for this genre 6. cast performance - very good 7. crew performance - not great, but above average for this genre at that time 8. amount of fighting - a lot 9. quality of fighting - good 10. special any cast or crew notes - occasionally credited to lo wei in reviews, the film was actually written and directed by star wang yu; although wang yu had contributed to the general 'jap'-bashing that plagued chop-socky 'fu for a while, he had quite a large following in japan, where he would eventually co-star in 'zatoichi vs. the one-armed swordsman'; this film is the first effort, in hong kong 'fu films, to find some way to 'forgive and forget' and abandon ethnic strife 11. big positive - just a nice bit of genre film-making over all 12. big negative - editing is weak bottom-line - who should see this movie - solid kung-fu entertainment for those with any interest in the genre
