The 18 Bronzemen won't let anyone pass
29 May 2009 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

With the help of a good friend, an orphan becomes a Shaolin master after many years of training. He wants to find the murderer of his parents some day and have his revenge. The most interesting bit is the training, though, when he needs to stand against 18 bronze men! The movie is known for making Carter Wong a star, but it was an influential movie beyond that. The villain needs to be mentioned; he has several bodyguards dressing just like him to confuse his enemies.

The difference in running time between the German version (77 minutes) and the Hong Kong version (93 minutes) is mostly due to a different beginning of the movie. The rather cruel early years of the boy's training were added to the Hong Kong version, although that footage was shot for "The 8 Masters" by the same director.
