An often told story made boring
28 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Shaolin Temple has burned to the ground in many movies but never in such a boring way. This version had all the star power and even a bit extra. Typically an all male cast, this version found room for Chia Ling but then didn't use her for any notable action sequences. The photography and costumes were at the highest level and that would be Shaw Brothers level. I'll never know for sure but I suspect it might have been filmed on Shaw sets and in Shaw costumes rented out daily. The evil emperor even has kung fu skills and a sword proof armor under his gowns. Then they forgot to film any real action. In the moment of heat, as the temple burns down, the head abbot holds a door open for about five minutes. He stands there holding the door open. Just stands there. Yawn. If you are a fan of kung fu movies of the golden age 1967- 1984 then you must watch this movie. Do your duty and be done with it. I can only rate it a 5/10 and I'm being generous.
