Hoo boy........! Weird kung fu fun!
29 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

Well! Some kung fu movies are intentionally but not successfully humorous, and other kung fu movies are intentionally but not successfully serious. This is one of the latter kind. To its credit, it tries to play it straight, with no annoying comedy per se, but the unintentional comedy is palpable! Like the scene when the evil monks roll down the hill and just keep on rolling and rolling and rolling... Priceless! And in general, the way the evil monks fight in patterns - very interesting-looking, but utterly nonsensical and ineffective! I gotta say the last scene with the blue and golden bronzemen was extremely cool-looking (if a bit short)!

The movie contains plenty of fighting, and some of it is quite good. There are a few too many characters, and the story doesn't make that much sense. The end (again) comes very abruptly, before the two heroes even get a chance to combine their two styles (which they keep saying they're gonna do). All in all, though, I'd say the movie gives a good impression of what the average second-rate but solid kung fu movie is like, silliness and all! There are definitely some good things in here.

However, I can't call this a *good* movie, because much of it is very silly. But it is also very funny, and the oodles of fight scenes towards the end are highly entertaining. So the movie gets from me a fairly generous rating of 6 out of 10. It's definitely good for some laughs!
