Some good ingredients here, but the execution is strictly average
24 May 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I see that THE DESCENDANTS OF WING CHUN has some positive reviews on here but I don't see it; for me, this was an entirely typical chop socky flick, one which passes the time but lacks the skill and technical prowess to make it a truly memorable viewing experience. The kind of knockabout comedy that invariably lightens these films is missing and the fight scenes are ordinary rather than exemplary.

The film begins with the introduction of a pair of villains, played by stock bad guy actors Fung Hark-On and Lee Hoi San. These two are probably the best things in the film, particularly the latter with his skilled fighting style. The heroes are a disparate group of lawmakers and layabouts on the hunt for some jewel thieves.

Melvin Wong (later a common face in Hong Kong action cinema) has a role here but nobody really distinguishes themselves in the fighting stakes and the limited comedy isn't very funny either. There is a lot of action, yes, but all too often the blows are obviously not connecting so it all feels a bit false. The usual pan and scan condition of the print and the poor dubbing also help to lessen the enjoyability of this one.
