Underwhelming
12 July 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

DAGGERS 8 is a singularly underwhelming kung fu feature that was made by the delightfully-named Honest Films Company in Hong Kong. The film features in Meng Yuan Man a young upstanding hero whose sole desire is to learn various martial arts techniques at the hands of various masters, including a cook, an acrobat, and a tailor. The only problem is that a rival master is going around killing each of those masters in turn and of course is coming for Man himself, so he has to find out why before he himself is killed.

It's an oddly random story and the execution of this rather cheap tale doesn't really get the juices flowing either. I'm unfamiliar with Meng Yuan Man as an actor and fighter but he seems very wooden when required to act and emote. His fighting is passable but he doesn't really light up the screen in the way that other martial artists do. Wilson Tong is better as the villain of the piece, although the real stand out is popular starlet Lily Li, whose own brand of 'female kung fu' is the highlight of the movie.
