Fairly standard Taiwanese martial arts flick
28 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

A peaceful city nation is taken over by an aggressive enemy, led by a dictator and a wizard. The children of three prominent citizens murdered by the invaders grow up and seek revenge.

Return of the Kung Fu Dragon is a martial arts film from Taiwan. It isn't particularly distinctive from the many other chopsocky films from the 70's. In other words its action packed from start to finish, with lots of kung fu fighting. Like others it's cheaply made, with ropey dubbing but it does gain something from its period setting, which does give it some production value. But on the whole, this is strictly one for enthusiasts for this kind of thing.
