"Martial" is the only kind of "arts" on display here....
21 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

Hardcore fans of old-school kung fu movies will probable enjoy "My Life's on the Line" more than I did. Most of the typical characteristics of this sub-genre are here: exaggerated sound effects, impossible jumps, annoying "comic" characters, and of course as little plot as necessary to move the film from one fight scene to the other. Speaking of the fight scenes, there are plenty of those here but they are just not my type: they seem too rehearsed, too elaborate - they play more like exhibitions of various kung fu techniques. But no matter what everyone's opinion on the rest of the movie is, most people will at least agree that the ending is incredibly disappointing. I don't want to spoil it in this comment, but it will definitely leave you saying "what?" (*1/2)
