The Condemned is movie directed by David Chiang( New One Armed Swordsman,Bloody Tattoo, Savage 5, Wandering Swordsman) is about Tsai Hung getting framed for murder by Pai Ying(HAPKIDO, FIST FULL OF TALONS , 7 MAN ARMY) and his thugs Wang Ching( SAVAGE 5, KUNG FU HELLCATS, HEROES 2, MEN FROM THE MONASTERY)also with him his Chan Shen(THE BASTARD, 5 FINGERS OF DEATH, SHAOLIN HANDLOCK, SHAOLIN ABBOT,DAREDEVILS). David Chiang in this movie plays a pickpocket with no kung fu skills. His girl friend is played by Lily Li. She plays the maid of the brothel run by Hu Chin( KIDNAP, DEADLY SILVER SPEAR,WIN THEM ALL, FATE OF LEE KHAN). Lily Li and David Chiang have always have great chemistry. This movie no different. This movie has subtle comedy. Especially with David Chiang and Tsai Hung in the jail. All those moments made me laugh.Also in this movie is Ku Feng( HEROIC ONES, SOUL OF THE SWORD, MASTER OF KUNG FU). Who is always a great presence. The fights are good and creative,especially Pai Ying's special move. Which is incredible. David Chaing is a solid director. He did a great job with this movie. This is Tsai Hung's ( DEATH CHAMBERS, BLOODED TREASURY FIGHT,FIVE MASTERS OF DEATH, SHAOLIN AVENGERS, THE HEROES) best performance of his career. I was surprised he did not get more chances to be a leading player after this movie. This is one of my favorites. This proves again the David Chiang is da' man!
