One of Yuen Biao's best from HK's golden age!
2 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Kung fu, comedy, action and magic, all tied up in one neat little movie directed by the man himself – the under-rated and amazing Yuen Biao.

Unfortunately, it's the only feature Biao fully directed so it's a little treat for all fans of a star that was once one of HK's greatest.

Biao claims that this is his favourite film – the one that best shows off his skills as an actor and martial artist – but I have to disagree. As great as it is, he's acted and fought in better, but I understand that as his only project in which he had full control of, it does mean a lot to him.

I do enjoy the character he plays here – a naïve Tibetan monk with a skill of kung fu and magic that helps him out when he helps others. The story is fairly paced, kept entertaining enough with comedic moments, exciting fight scenes and the menacing Yuen Wah, that just gets better as the show moves along. Once the 2 Yuen's get to clash we suddenly get a treat of crazy swordplay, which puts you in mind of both their roles in the fantastic, The Iceman Cometh.

Yuen Biao's footwork has always been a highlight in any movie he's been in, and it certainly gets put to use here.

A Kid From Tibet is a fairly good – fantastic film, depending on how much of a fan you are, and is entertaining enough for repeated viewings.

So check it out, you won't be disappointed!
