not that bad, but has nothing to do with title
1 November 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Basically, the movie is about this guy named the Silver Eagle who is going around fighting and killing great martial artist "masters" so he can become the best. He kills the master of the Shaolin Temple, so the dead man's granddaughter and son (Mo) both try to take their revenge. Mo man learns to fight from an old beggar who also teaches him humility and finally the beggar, the granddaughter, and Mo join together to do battle with The Silver Eagle. My comments are somewhat short, but I just wanted to say that I did like this movie because the fighting scenes weren't that bad. However, if you're interested in seeing monkey kung fu or especially drunken monkey kung fu (which is not easy to find - I've only heard of it in maybe two movies) you will be disappointed as there is none. I repeat, there is neither the drunken monkey style NOR the monkey style of fighting as the title of the movie would lead you to suspect. I bought the movie and found out by watching it!
