This one seems to be vastly under-rated
4 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

I have just finished Hell'z Windstaff and I am just blown away. I have wanted to see this film since I became a big fan of Hwang Jang Lee and I am not disappointed.

This film has a lot to offer. If you like your kung fu movie with a lot of Szechuan spice then this one is for you. It's quite violent in places but it is tempered with a lot of humour.

I do not believe in telling the whole story here but as you can probably guess it is a film about good triumphing over evil. But in order to do so, most of the cast is bumped off by sticks. And the evil is delightfully provided by Master Hwang. He is just so devastating but, oh wait, every so often I saw someone doing his stunts for him. The stunts were mainly of a spinning acrobatic nature. Rest assured all those kicks and manoevers with the Devil Sticks are all his own doing.

And just to tease you all, you simply have to see the end of this film. One of the two pesky boys does a little piece de resistance; something out of the ordinary with Master Hwang before finally doing him in. I nearly did my own backward somersault flip when I saw it.
