This movie is a classic. It has everything. Great settings, nice music, well developed characters, a good plot and awesome Kung Fu battles. Cha Ta-chu (Chang Yi), master of the 'Palm of Death, is recruited by a Qing government official to find a manuscript. In order to do this, he has to fight against the Ming Union, a rebel group that wants to overthrow the Qing and restore the Ming.
The Kung Fu fights are very good, with awesome choreography. You should see the Monkey and Mantis style that provide the best battle of the movie. Also, this movie has a good plot. It is not just fighting, like in many Kung Fu movies, but it has character development. Chang Yi is the true protagonist in the story and he is awesome. Lee Kwan is also quite good and provides a lot of comical scenes.
All in all, this film is a classic. 10 of 10. If you have not seen it yet, then go and buy/rent it now.
