This movie is funnier but...
4 November 1999 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

This movie has many more funny jokes than the previous 4 entries. At age of 20, Chiu Man Cheuk looks good in this movie, though he does not get to fight much (He got hurt badly while making this movie, maybe this is why he does not fight with the same ferocity and speed as he normally does). Most of the film seems to be focused on his silly disciples and thus the film is kind of silly. Overall this is an entertaining movie, but if you want to see better Kungfu fights, see The Blade and The Blacksheep Affair in which Chiu Man Cheuk looks absolutely awesome and gorgeous.
