Trivia

The dubbed version of this movie begins with voice-overs from an American company. At the half-way point, however, the dubbing process was transferred to a British studio, and therefore the accents become English in the later scenes of the movie. See more »

Quotes

Tiger: I'm so cold master. Can't we start a fire?
Master: No. If we made a fire the cold air would go directly into your body and kill you.

the best kung fu movie ever!!!
22 March 2008 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This film is a masterpiece. It is possibly the most ridiculous film ever made yet appears to take itself seriously throughout. Its the only kung fu film I've ever seen with lots of naked women and sexual references which makes it even more funny. The trick-or-treat style costumes, crazy editing and voice overs all make it a non-stop laugh riot if you like bad films.

I don't recommend this film for dull minded people who need everything to make sense or be easy to understand. This film is for people who know how much fun the absurdity of Kung Fu can be.

This is now my second favorite kung fu movie, my first is still "Wheels on Meals" with Jackie Chan, its not quite as absurd as this one though.

Both of those films (and many others including Ninja Death 2) are available for free, legally, online with Joost. Download their player and go to the "Tokyo Pulp" channel and you can view them for free.
