the least in the series
22 May 2000 | by (Stockton, California) – See all my reviews

This movie was the fifth in the epic OUATIC series and Zhao Wen-Zhou's second performance as Wong Fei-Hung. However, this movie is by far the least of the series. The plot deals with Master Wong and his bumbling cohorts and their attempts to fight off pirates. The conflict between the pirates and the heroes seems quite underdeveloped. There is too much goofball humor between Clubfoot, Sol, Butcher Wing, and Foon. Zhao isn't given much of a chance to use any of his skills. This movie doesn't have the epic scope or historical themes that made the first three movies great. The movie is also incredibly violent. The love story between Master Wong and Aunt Yee was basically left alone after a while leaving the viewer wondering what's to come of it. The only things that make this movie worth watching are some good gunplay, Xiong Xin Xin's excellent kicks, and some Wushu by Zhao Wen-Zhuo.
