Goofs

When the master is teaching Wong Tai about how to defend himself against the chain, he rolls up his sleeves and says for Wong Tai to attack him with the chain. Then, after they are done practising, he rolls up his sleeves again, and there appear to be forearm guards there that were not there before. See more »

First Jackie Chan film without Jackie Chan!
15 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

I usually come on this site before I rent / buy a movie, but this time I actually rented "Jackie Chan and the 36 Crazy Fists" without reading anything about it, only to discover that Jackie is nowhere to be seen; he just choreographed the fight scenes! Anyway, when you get past this initial shock, the film is pretty close to most people's idea of a typical mid-70's martial arts flick: minimal plot, no production values, bad dubbing, poor picture quality, cartoonish sound effects, acting that mostly consists of twitching and eyeball-rolling, and lots and lots of action (one thing that's not so typical is the brief female toplessness). The action itself is a bit too choreographed, too "coordinated" for my tastes (the fighters seem to want to demonstrate their kung fu techniques more than to actually fight), but for old-school kung fu fans it will be a treat; others beware.
