Almost banned martial arts
31 January 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

So they say this movie was banned in several countries. So as I watched I tried to figure out why.. Well this plot is rather weak in that the normal "master" gets killed and the revenge thing happens.. Yet the twist this time is that this guy seems un-stoppable because of this so called sword that he has.. The fight scenes are rather weak and laffable compared to other films of this type.. What sets this one apart from a lot of the others is some of the so called Special Effects in the fights.. one example is when "Super Chan" seems to have a vertical jump of say 50 or 60 feet easily. He fights 100's of men in what seems like some sort of thing to make the movie a lot longer than it should be. You have a small love interest in the film with sad lookin backgrounds. I can on recommend this movie to anyone lookin for something different that they can laff at and poke fun at. AS you can't take it all serious. I think the reason is was banned as some of the fight scenes are pretty violent and bloody with some of these men being killed in really strange ways. I have already added this film to my collection as one to keep.. At least it is not as bad as Kung Pow.. If that is telling you anything..
