Most Unique Old School Kung Fu Film Ever!, 1 March 2005
Author: kwhuneycutt from Little Rock

Master of the Flying Guillotine aka One Armed Boxer 2 is one of the greatest old school kung fu movies ever made, it is an absolute classic of the genre. Jimmy Wang Yu's sequel to "The One Armed Boxer" aka "The Chineese Professionals" is perhaps better than the original and is a strong enough film to stand on its own.

A blind assassin, a one armed martial arts master and a Yoga instructor with stretching limbs are just a few of the elements that make this film one of the most creative and memorable martial arts films ever! One of the most interesting aspects of this movie is all of the many different martial arts styles that are displayed. There is a great tournament sequence were martial arts experts from all over the world compete in a fight to the death. You see various styles of Kung Fu, Muy Thi kick boxing, Karate and more. There are also many different weapons used in the film, from the three section staff to the outrageous flying guillotine.

The fights in the film are a bit slower and "looser" than some big studio movies (Shaw Bros, Golden Harvest) but they are still well choreographed and executed. The special effects and fight sequences still hold up well after 30+ years. This movie has been called Quentin Tarantino's favorite kung fu film, and when you see it you'll know why. You are no movie buff until you have seen this true cult masterpiece!

One Armed Boxer 2 aka "Master of the Flying Gullitine" is one of the most unique stories ever told on film. The characters and visuals are truly unbelievable. Jimmy Wang Yu's "One Armed Boxer 2" is perhaps his finest work and one of the greatest independently produced films in the martial arts genre. With great action and characters, Master of the Flying Gullitine is definitely a top 10 film of the kung fu genre and is a definite must see (or buy) for any martial arts junkie.

Martial Arts Genre Rating: 10/10 (classic)

Overall Movie Rating: 7/10
