For 'fu fans only
18 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

There's nothing about Shaolin here; tiger fist is used once, very briefly, in the whole movie. And no one uses mantis fist - although there is a giant mantis lurking about here....

Strange hybrid of standard '70s chop-socky and cheap monster movie. Basically for kung fu fans only. Being one, I do find it entertaining, but it is silly as all get out. Feminists could have a field day with it, though, as it is ambivalent about the abuse of women, and in a pretty serious way - one of the female characters undergoes repeated abuse, but she is a monster, after all.

Dean Shek turns in a surprisingly strong performance as the main villain, a rare role for him. The rest of the cast are competent, though not much more. The pacing is very good for this sort of film, and the visuals are fairly professional.

And the fight scenes are actually pretty good, just don't expect any Shaolin animal styles. It's a notch or two above the old "swinging arms boxing style, but hardly a study of real martial arts skills.
