Bizarre and thoroughly great martial arts fantasy comedy
10 April 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not only is this film one of the artistic peaks of the more madcap end of martial arts cinema, its also one of the strangest. It plot has a young man seeking to avoid marriage getting mixed up with a drunken monk who has let escape an evil wizard type fellow, who needs the blood of virgins. The plot is largely irrelevant and there as much as necessary to string a series of constantly entertaining and eye wateringly weird set pieces, with a spot of martial arts mixed in with all manner of magic and madness. As a small taster, there is giant puppet action, a fight where the two heroes have large plaster faces on their behinds and a prison escape that involves dominoes, a paper monkey and its urine. Strange things happen at a marvellous speed in this film, never wearing out their appeal and managing to build in oddness and mad splendour as the film goes on even though the film was pretty bonkers from the beginning. Simon Yuen is fun as the young hero, Eddy Ko plays a villain, whilst Cheung Yan Yuen is skilled and highly amusing as the drunkard monk. The dubbing of the film is OK, though subtitles would have been great and the general quality is decent enough, given that I have a cheap release of it, though again it isn't perfect. The final moments could have been better and a bit more actual martial arts would have been nice, especially given that the film is directed by Yuen Woo Ping and has action by the Yuen Clan. Still, these small issues are nothing really besides the wondrous, invigorating craziness and verve that fills this film pretty much from start to finish. Highyl recommended.
