my favorite Kung fu movie (not staring bruce lee/jackiechan/jetlee etc)
17 June 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie is the best. It doesn't have your jackie chan's or bruce lee or any other mainstream superstar actor (sorry bruce) But in my eyes its a classic.

It story is about the current kings champion in china (sang kwan chung) about to retire, when his title is put under question by a mysterious note pinned to his banner. Sang kwan chan then sets out to prove he is the rightful owner of the title and defeat the 7 grandmasters. Along the the way he picks up a young student who is neglected by the current 3 other students of the Pi mae Grand master, who wants to learn the style and pledges his loyalty.

This movie is not just your average movie. It has Many laughs and great fighting sequences and a climax that is truly awesome.

If you see this movie and are a fan of the old school Kung fu movies..then buy it.
