Slightly above average kung fu

The plot centers on Little Lu (Sonny Yu) who tends horses for the local Shaolin temple, and wants to learn skills that will help him defeat some corrupt officials who want to destroy it. He has a couple of friends (one with no arms, the other with no legs) who help him train using some bronze mechanical horses in a secret room in the temple.

Overall, this movie was pretty good. The bad parts were the dubbing, and the overuse of an echoey sound effect in some of the fights. The plot is a little strange, there were some confusing scenes that really weren't explained too well. And then there are the ridiculous bronze horses. Other than that, it was good.

The strength here was the well-choreographed fight scenes with various interesting weapons, and good editing. My version was full-screen pan and scan, but I could still see all of the action. Sometimes the fights in kung fu movies have obvious cutting points because the actors can only do a few moves at a time, but in this one I didn't really notice that. There was some minor gore, but not too much that one wouldn't expect from a movie of this type.
