Shaolin Kung Fu Master
16 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

I forgot all about this movie. I haven't seen it since one of those late night movies I saw in the early '80s on TV.

The copy I have is directed by Wong Fei Lung and is dated 1978 and "not" directed by Jimmy Shaw in 1980 as stated here.

There are five deadly fighters all trained in they're special techniques including monkey, arm, eagle claw, staff and one that's not mentioned only to assume that he's the main villain. These fighters are being killed off one by one and our star is trying to find out who is doing it.

This kung fu movie is a bit of a mystery with good choreography, plenty fights and Wong Tao (Don Wong) as a standout. It has a pretty decent cast, with Wong Goon Hung (Kuan-Hsiung Wang) as the leading man and Tsang Chiu (Chao Tseng) plays his sidekick.

Cheung Paang (Peng Chang) has a good villain role and Chang Yi plays the main villain (which isn't revealed until later in the movie). Chang Yi has a fight with Wong Goon Hung near the end of the movie and Wong gets defeated easily by Chang Yi, but he lets him go to train for six months hoping that Wong can come back and give him a good fight. It leads to his training scene where Wong uses bamboo poles and has a bunch of cobras around him and he catches them with his hands.

All of this is over a hidden treasure of gold buried in a well on a hill. I enjoyed seeing this again, I give it 6
