Standard 70's martial arts movie with a great final fight
In this Hong Kong action flick, members of a martial arts school find themselves up against a gang of thugs, after the latter wage a reign of terror on innocent locals.
The Four Shaolin Challengers is another in a seemingly endless line of low budget 70's chopsocky movies. Like most in the sub-genre this one features mind-bogglingly bad dubbing and copious martial arts fighting scenes, while its story-line can best be described as 'routine'. Where this one scores though is in its very impressive extended final show-down where we see several fights playing out simultaneously. This is a pretty interesting and memorable finale which includes the use of some original weaponry such as cymbals and an umbrella, both of which are put to deadly use. It's this well executed show-down that makes this one worth watching, the rest of the movie otherwise being pretty by-the-numbers.
