Sharp and effective
11 September 2012 | by (WILMINGTON, NC) – See all my reviews

The movie Shaolin Abbot aka A Slice of Death, has proved a point in many ways. Here you have this monk who goes to this other temple, practice his feats of strength, learns inner strength in that temple. Especially, when he uses that palm strike to cause the other vases to explode on impact. At the temple, there is a man name Pai Mei, a supporter of the Manchus who has help from another monk to take out the Shaolin monks. After the Chaplin Temple massacre, he flees south to go rebuild the temple. He gained some new students to help him out, and take out Pai Mei and his followers. One of them is a nephew, one is a butcher, the other a knife sharpener, a female fighter who is out to avenge her teacher, and a merchant. The fighting styles were great the choreography was well put. Each one did exactly superb. The weapons were fantastic. Couldn't be any better. It was very helpful to know what fighting skills being used to take out the enemy, and sticking to the original skills would just result in disaster. I enjoyed this movie very well, I did see this film once or twice. Just seeing it again brings back memories. 2.5 out of 5 stars.
