Great Shaw Brothers Magic
21 January 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This film shows the aesthetic's of what modern Kung Fu movies are about and where inspiration for movies such as Kill Bill come from. Very cool movie, i enjoyed it, and you need to watch movies for what they are. I have only seen the original Chinese version with subtitles but I believe there is also a dubbed version similar to the film the 5 Deadly Venoms, another great Shaw Brothers Film, and actually makes for cool voices. These types of films have a distinct style and are the inspiration for many filmmakers and also musicians such as the Wu-Tang Clan. This along with many other films may not be enjoyed by all but need to be seen for what they are, and that may not live up to today's Hollywood expectations. But I think great films don't need to be restricted by those expectations.
