High-kicking hi-jinks with the great Mr. Tan!
14 April 2002 | by (Swindon, UK) – See all my reviews

Promising more boot than you could shake a kwan at, Flash Legs does almost everything it says on the tin: delivering the 'flash legs' of its title, Tan Tao Liang, in many high-kicking confrontations with the bootmaster showing off his whole repertoire of fancy leg work. The premise seems tedious enough

  • eight bandits are single-handedly bumped off by police chief Liang for


stealing a sacred treasure map - and makes you wonder how it lasts the distance. It's probably got something to do with all those fight scenes, which fly in thick and fast in this relatively mediocre kung fu fest.
