Great Kung Fu flick
28 August 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Classic Kung Fu, fairly fast paced choreography, great Kung Fu action throughout, especially the ending scene is a fan-honored fight of the 70s.

A ruthless white-haired general intends to take over a small town with the help of his posse, "The Five Hands Gang". A local tearaway and kung fu kid, Tiger, learns of their plot and informs his uncle Lee San Pai, master of the seven steps style of kung fu and sworn enemy of the Five Hands Gang. The old master instructs Tiger in the art of seven steps kung fu and together they tackle the white-haired general and the Five Hands Gang. A true classic that shook late night!

A ton of long fight scenes and some very creative choreography make this old-schooler a clear stand-out from the crowd.

Absolutely recommended to any Kung Fu fan! The top villain is marvelous, 8 out of 10.
