Storyline

Frank the carpenter is in love with Hsiao Cheng, his boss's daughter. Frank knows there is no hope for him to marry the daughter of the haughty, rich man, and pronounces a vow to become a Shaolin monk. The wife of Frank's former boss has an extra-marital affair with the carpenter-shop's foreman. When the boss finds out, the foreman kills him, and sets the blame on Frank. Frank will fight for his honour, and wins back his good name - but not his former love. Written by Artemis-9

The Furious Monk from Shaolin (1974)
1 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

aka Shaolin Vengeance aka Killer Priest.. WHOA.. Let's stop right there. Before I go any further let me use this quote - "What movie are we really watching here?". This quote was used by ckormos1 when he reviewed "Fighting of Shaolin Monks (1976)" and he was talking about the issue between these two movies and the title "Killer Priest".

Let me explain... This movie (The Furious Monk from Shaolin) has a "DVD" from Xenon "Martial Masters" titled Killer Priest. The movie "Fighting of Shaolin Monks" has Xenon's Wu Tang "VHS" title Killer Priest and a "Wu Tang Collection" titled "Killah Priest". The biggest issue is that "Chan Sing" and "Philip Ko" are on the cover of all of these, so the confusion begins. The biggest difference you can find is the female stars - "Joan Lin Feng-Chiao" being the lead in this one and "Chia Ling" on the "Fighting of Shaolin Monks". Hope this helps somebody out there.

This movie starts out with our hero (Chan Sing) finalizing his ceremony to become a Buddhist monk and his girlfriend (Chia Ling) is trying to stop him, then it flashes back in time to where it all began. Chan works for a logging company and a fight breaks out because he's defending an old man that the boss was being cruel to. The owner shows up (Chia's father), ends up getting knocked down in the hustle and someone kills him, but with the blame being put on Chan Sing. Chan runs and ends up at a temple where they except him and start training him. After a while, Chan leaves the temple and goes back to expose the truth and seek revenge before returning to finish becoming a monk.

This is a good movie and I enjoyed it all the way through. If you like these classics, I'm sure you will too.
