Peace is no option for the 8 masters
30 May 2009 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

After "The 18 Bronzemen" and "Return of the 18 Bronzemen", Joseph Kuo and Carter Wong worked on another movie with similar setting, but even though the movies in their longer versions borrowed some footage from each other, it's not exactly a trilogy as Carter Wong plays a different character again. Raised by monks, he wants to stay with them, but they send him away. Soon he is attacked by 8 Kungfu masters who were involved in the killing of his father. They suspect he came back for vengeance, and even though he wants peace, he doesn't have a choice and gets into one fight after another. It's less original and not a classic of the genre as much as the two above mentioned movies, besides the Bronzemen appear but briefly in footage partly taken from "Return...", but quite good nonetheless with an action-packed last half hour.
