The Mad Monk steals the show
14 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

6/1/1972 – with Yueh Hua, Wong Gam-Fung, Fan Mei-Sheng, Paul Chun Oui, Go Ming, and Yeung Chi-Hing Yueh Hua is a good guy, too good, naïve for his years, and easily taken advantage. That's the whole problem with the plot. Fan Mei-Shen is his brother in arms and his opposite. Though not a bad guy he distrusts everyone and considers mercy a weakness. There is a historical basis for both characters but they are loosely represented here. For me the lead character came across as more pathetic than sympathetic though. Father and son action directors, Bruce Leung and his dad, created the fight sequences here and I wish I was there for that. Yeuh Hua has my respect as he is an actor and not a martial artist because he has certainly been practicing. In fact, I think he could have done better personally. Some of the strikes were about a meter off target but overall good, still lacking in 16 plus move sequences by my count. Fan Mei-Sheng is an easy target to criticize but this role was made for him and he gloried in it. Basically a one trick pony as the dumb guy who solves all his problems with a fight, I totally enjoyed every moment he was on the screen in this movies, especially his fights. Overall just slightly above average because of not enough action and totally depressing story line.
