An above average kung-fu film
22 October 2001 | by (Portland, Or.) – See all my reviews

Shaolin Traitor is an above average martial arts film from the early Eighties. The American video box claims 'More Moves And Weapons Than Ever Seen In One Film'. That's not quite true, but the fight scenes are well-choreographed and the composition and framing of shots are superior to most martial arts imports at the time. A fight between two women using a fan as a weapon is a standout. The plot concerns a traitorous monk at the often-celebrated Shaolin temple: the story is reasonably well thought out, but there are occasional holes that make it difficult to follow... not that one watches for the plot. A little more attention is paid to Buddhist tradition than in most Shaolin kung-fu movies. Low budget, but solid martial arts action.
