Kung fu guy comes home and things have changed
13 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Many of these old movies were retitled when released as VHS rentals. The resulting confusion is evident here. There are at least five movies that have the same alternate title as this one "Master of Death." The Tai Seng video release of this movie has an audio commentary soundtrack. I find it amusing that the commenters also get the title of the movie wrong. They think it is "Crazy Horse Intelligent Monkey". I'm also surprised they don't recognize Lee Wan-Chung as the old white hair master. He was in about 190 movies total. Anyway, the movie starts with Chi Kuan Chun being dismissed by his martial arts master because he has nothing left to teach him. He goes back home and things have changed for the worse. Overall, above average fights from start to finish, otherwise nothing special.
