Great kung fu movie
18 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Iron Swallow is a surprisingly "great" kung fu movie. The fights are good, and that's the main thing I look for, but get this, the story is good too. It happens, just not often enough. Judy Lee is after 10 old men who covered up a crime they committed 10 years ago. Wong Tao and Ting Wa-chung play best friends and are students of Yee Yuen (he plays one of the 10 men Judy Lee is after), and the 2 students have to try and figure out what's going on.

The final 10 minutes of this movie is pure awesomeness. Good fighting, yes, but a good story greatly enhances the viewing experience. Judy Lee and Wong Tao perform their fight scenes very well, but the they can't match up to Wong Wing Sang's skills. Most people will recognize him as the guy who uses a pole to fight Ghostfaced Killer, and he plays the Yoga master with extendable arms in Master of the Flying Guillotine. He has some awesome skills, and he gets plenty of chances to show them off in this kung fu classic. This is a dam good movie all the way through. Highly recommended for kung fu fans who don't like much comedy with their kung.

The Crash DVD picture quality is full screen and faded, but still more than watchable.
