Pretty mediocre martial arts stuff but with some good moments
8 April 2016 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

The more I watch these 70's martial arts movies the harder work I seem to find them. This one is pretty similar to many others in the genre and it seems pretty certain that unless you have a predilection for extended kung fu fight scenes you might struggle with this one. In fairness, this entry does at the very least try to be a little different in that our two heroes get to battle a wizard and his zombies. That at least made it a bit more distinctive.

While this one is obviously and action movie, it has one foot firmly in the comedy genre too. As such it has a light approach and many of the fights are clearly played for laughs, such as when the brothers defeat a giant zombie by pummelling him into the earth using an enormous pair of hammers. Like in a lot of these movies, the fight scenes often overstay their welcome somewhat but I have to say that the final encounter with the wizard was pretty funny and well-orchestrated, including some shots of a toad edited into the action for good measure. Another trait of these old south-east Asian movies was that its soundtrack sounded like it must've been stolen from a more famous western film. I have no idea which film that was but it sounded very familiar to me so I'm pretty such it's from something I have seen before! All–in-all, I didn't think this was a very good movie but it at least had some memorable moments.
