excellent Kung-Fu flick
4 October 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

As described in other martial art reviews done by me I came across a box on a flea market full of Kung-Fu DVD's. And I must say that I'm happy I bought it. This wasn't boring at all and is worth watching for the old school martial art geeks.

On part of the fight scene's it's worth watching for the fighting going on on the so-called Shaolin Poles. It's almost unbelievable to see what Fei Meng and Yasuaki Kurata are doing. Fei Meng picked up his role again as Fang Shi-Yu, the popular fighter with his white fan and a brilliant smile. On the other hand Yasuaki Kurata, who's still performing nowadays, plays a Japanese fighter but just look how he humiliate women by giving kicks with his feet in their face or isn't afraid to rape women. Back then the Chinese weren't fund of the Japanese.

Due the good fighting scene's and a great story it's a must see for the lovers of the genre. I do like it more then the American Kung-Fu flicks with Bruce Lee or the new ones. The only trick you see in the old schools are the one with the wires used to elevate people. And I was also surprised to see blood here in such old flicks.

Maybe the only negative thing I can say is the poor quality of the DVD, even the release in the US is a VHS rip-off but hey, it do adds towards the grindhouse feeling.
