Crane versus Tiger
3 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a difficult film to review as it could have been a brilliant film and has some very good elements but ultimately is hard to watch. First the actors. The star is Bruce Leung who has to have credit for moving beyond simple Bruce Lee exploitation and has some good kung fu skills but can't carry the film and is actually really irritating at times. His uncle Lee Tso Nam starts to teach him Crane Fist style but dies to Bolo Yeung's (in a rare old skool role) Tiger Claw. The slack is taken up by an 'old' herbalist (name not on my DVD but wearing possibly the worst grey wig seen in a film) and his beautiful grand-daughter who own fighting skills are shown all too briefly. After the obligatory training sessions (quite good by the way) come the long, vicious fights against Bolo and then the excellent Phillip Ko (Fei). These are worth seeing if you make it through the first two thirds of the film. The direction is lazy at times and Phillip Ko's henchmen (including the weasly Chan Lau) are stock characters, including one who is cross-eyed and another with painted on spots!
