Drunken Monkey!! Nope. Good Kung Fu? Heck yeah!
5 August 2005 | by (Pennsylvania, United States) – See all my reviews

This is low budget beyond belief. The dubbing is hideous and the copy I have has no Chinese soundtrack option. There's no drinking, except the beggar looks pretty blitzed most of the time. There's no drunken fighting. There's no Monkey style. This film however does have everything you would expect from an old Hong Kong low budget Kung Fu film. The bad guy has a Fu Manchu and long white hair. The good guys are humble and ragged. Everyone is bent on revenge. The fighting is just great! All its low budget stupidity and lame slapstick comedy aside, it has beautiful fighting. And seriously, a lot of these movies are just like blue films from the 70s.. You fast forward through the plot and get right to the action.

For the dollar I paid, I am totally not disappointed.
