Another Kung Fu Romp
6 March 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, typical Kung Fu Movie with the following classic elements:

1) One-on-one fight with Bolo Yeung - A must have in my mind! I really enjoy finding him under some pseudonym or another and am disappointed when he doesn't appear! 2) Drunk/poverty stricken/opium smoking type Master with the weird and strange training techniques. 3) Bruce Lee look-a-like with: Ripped off shirt, Licking of blood, Side ways glances, Weapon demonstration. 4) Extreme lack of females on screen. 5) European persons as the masterminds of the criminal ring.

6) Synchophant skinny guy kow towing to the foreigners.

The variety of threads tying the movie together give it a bit more plot than most of them do. This came in a set of ten, can't wait to get to the others!
