Everything a old school kung-fu movie should be
5 June 2004 | by (London Town (Merry Olde)) – See all my reviews

The 'script' is hilarious. The kicking is awesome. All the men with beards look the same. The love interest is a bit of a minger, and her brother appears to be retarded.

This is by far my favourite kung fu film, and I believe was also sounded endorsed by Quentin Tarantino when he was doing the rounds for Kill Bill 2.

You will laugh, you will go 'oooooh' you will clasp your face with agony at the dire dubbing and acting and YOU WILL ENJOY THIS.

Also, it has a man defeated by an 'iron finger' attack _down there_ if you know what I mean. Nice.
