Old school Kung Fu with Jimmy Wang Yu, 27 February 2011
Author: actionfilm-2 from United States

Terrific martial arts film starring Wan Yu (a.k.a. Jimmy Wang Yu of One Armed Boxer fame) as a rebel during the Manchu occupation of China and Hsiao-Chuang Kuo (billed as Kou Shu Chung) as a leader in the boxer rebellion. Some melodrama involved but mostly a fight film with Kung Fu battles occupying just about the entire second half of it's 92 min. running time. Plenty of edged weapons fighting, mostly swords, and anyone familiar with Wang Yu's fighting style will see it on fine display here. His female counterpart Hsiao-Chuang Kuo does an excellent job portraying the stoic proud rebel leader fighting overwhelming odds. She has a casual manner when it comes to execution of her fight scenes, but the choreography is wonderful. I viewed this on a pan and scan VHS under the title Fury of King Boxer, and even with the picture cropped the modest but impressive cinematography shines thru. If you enjoy the genre, especially old school martial arts, this film is for you.
