Action-filled kung fu movie with lost plot...
30 March 2003 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

1st watched 3/30/2003 - 3 out of 10(Dir-Law Kai Shuk): Action-filled kung fu movie with lost plot. The kung fu sequences aren't bad in this movie but that's about all you get in this `Bruce Li', not Bruce Lee, camouflaged kung fu movie. This is one of the many attempts to make money off of Bruce Lee without him being a part of the movie. I'm amazed that this was able to be done so often with him but this just shows his major appeal in this genre. Anyway, the movie, in it's plot is confusing so I won't even attempt to make heads or tales out of that. There's a bad guy, a good guy, and a lot of fighting. This is what I mean by `lost plot.' And what's worse is sometimes hard to pin-point who's the bad guy and who's the good guy during the movie. I hate it when this happening. Pass this one up if you're looking for something interesting in the kung fu genre.
