Shaolin Mantis (Orig. Tang lang) is a 1978 Shaw Brothers film directed by Lau Kar-leung. Starring David Chiang and Liu Chia Hui. Shaolin Mantis tells the story of a man who learns martial arts by observing a praying mantis.
make Mission Kill a slightly better than average Hong Kong action flick. The plot seems pretty simple at first: young woman cop + side kicks battle evil drug dealers and a team of deadly assassins, but with the help of Simon Yam, a few surprises are added to make the film that much more enjoyable. With an obviously low budget, the filmmakers were able to pull off some well choreographed action sequences involving good gun-play and strong kung-fu. Moon Lee is great as she kicks lots of butt and still adds some comic relief. If you have a mind for some low-budget, fun action, this film is worth a look.
