Basket head
9 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

I have no idea what 'The Screaming Tiger' was about. The story is basically incoherent but I gathered it had something to do with a Chinese fighter who travels to Japan in order to avenge a massacre.

It would have been nice to have understood what was going on, the weirdo who walks around playing a pan-pipe with a basket on his head is particularly perplexing, but a finely nuanced plot is hardly essential for an enjoyable martial arts film and what this film lacks in character development, it more than makes up for with some inventive and highly entertaining fight sequences.

Some of the martial arts highlights include a scene where the Chinese fighter takes on a group of Sumo wrestlers and an exhilarating fight sequence that takes place on the top of a moving train, a bridge and on the edge of a waterfall. The lead actor is competent and I enjoyed the actress who played his sarcastic love interest.

Recommended for fans of the genre.
