Doesn't offer much for the kung fu fan
18 July 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Despite the odd element of interest, THE YOUNG AVENGER is a generally disappointing kung fu movie with a slapdash feel. The film stars Wong Yue as a rather idiotic character who lives on the outskirts of the law. One day he encounters a vengeful spirit (!) who proceeds to train him in the ways of the martial arts so that he might be revenged upon the trio of thugs who killed him.

So far so interesting, as I always welcome supernatural elements in a movie. Sadly, a later twist in the narrative negates this interest, which leaves THE YOUNG AVENGER a merely bog-standard kung fu outing. It was directed by kung fu star Wilson Tong, who also appears as the chief villain; let's just say his high kicking is better than his technical expertise behind the camera. Yue's buffoonish hero is hard to take seriously, let alone like, and a lack of decent action rounds off a disappointing film overall.
