Cheap, bog standard Hong Kongese kung fu
15 September 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

SUPER KUNG FU KID is a cheap and lousy kung fu effort that comes to us courtesy of Hong Kong. It's an early effort in the career of director Joseph Velasco, the man best known for bringing us the cheesy delights of THE CLONES OF BRUCE LEE and others. However, this effort - about a warring young man who discovers that his own brother is a gangster - is very much a by rote product, filled with inane fighting and barely anything in the way of plot.

The production is so cheap that half of the thing seems to have been filmed in an old quarry with various characters fighting over and over. A big bald thug is one of the main heavies here but there are the usual sneering villains and the like. The young upstanding hero is an exceptional bore and overall the production value is poor with fuzzy picture quality and badly-staged fights. Around the mid section of the film the narrative seems to stop entirely for some misogynistic abuse meted out to some poor young girl.

The only reason anyone could possibly want to see this is to catch the likes of James Nam, Bolo Yeung, Yuen Wah, and Yuen Biao at the early stages of their careers but they're in it very little and the latter two are almost impossible to spot. The only time the film picks up is for the violent climax on the boat but the rest is just filler.
