This is the third in the Crippled Masters series, but only the second I have seen. Being a huge fan of the original, Fighting Life didn't let me down.
The two main guys from Crippled Masters head into Taipei, seeking jobs. Weirdly, the movie totally discounts the original movie, with the two cripples being brothers rather then former enemies united against a main bad guy. But basically, it's hard work getting money and stuff like that.
There is a lot less kung fu in this, and quite a bit more drama. It was honestly a breath of fresh air, as another straight kung fu movie would have been frankly boring.
Some parts of this are also funny. Whenever there is a crowd, the most random things get yelled out, and a black guy gets hit in the face repeatedly, with a funny reaction. But then there's a little bit of corny "brothers stick together" scenes that annoy me.
Overall, it was a groovy movie, and I can't wait for Two Crippled Heroes to reach me.
