Iron Neck Li (Chi Kuan Chun) is a brave man who sticks his neck out for the weak. A young Emperor takes Li along his travels, righting wrongs. They encounter a clan so powerful that Li has to risk his life to save the Emperor. Starring veteran Shaw Bros. actor Chi Kuan Chun, this film has the action to satisfy even hard core kung fu lovers. One on one or against an army, "Iron Neck Li" delivers.
Chi Kuan-Chun attracts the emperor's eye with his good deeds and fighting skills. He goes off on a trip to Taiwan with the naïve emperor. After two good opening fights the story becomes a travelogue for Taiwan complete with learning the customs. The emperor's money solves all the awkward situations they get into until a group of bandits notices them.
The pace of this movie is unbearable slow. In between the fights the only thing that happens is deciding where to go and what to eat. The emperor's toady is annoying and the voice dub for the character is twice as annoying.
Somehow I stuck through it to the end. Even the best final fight in history could not make up for the previous 70 minutes. Ultimately this movie is why we have fast forward. Use it for the entire middle section.
