10 TIGERS OF SHAOLIN is a routinely-plotted kung fu actioner with a period setting made and shot in Hong Kong. It stars Bruce Leung as the hero; Leung is familiar to modern-day audiences for his role in KUNG FU HUSTLE as the mega-villain of the piece, but here he's an upstanding hero. He looks a lot like Jet Li in his get-up and he certainly proves a tour de force in the fight scenes.

The plot is of the usual variety concerning scheming villains and their endless henchmen and the ten upstanding warriors who gather together to fight them. Shades of SEVEN SAMURAI here perhaps, but the plot is very slim and the characters rather interchangeable. Like Jimmy Wang Yu's BEACH OF THE WAR GODS, the whole exercise is something of an excuse to have a massive, half-hour long battle scene at the climax, with the good guys facing off an army armed with wicker shields. It's solid stuff even if the choreography isn't really up to scratch; a forgettable fight flick perhaps, but one that passes the time acceptably enough.
