lowbudget old school kung fu
7 June 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The story is a little fast at the beginning but I have no problem with that.

After rescuing a venerable martial arts teacher from the deadly clutches of the army and its vicious leader, Wong Wu Ti, two bumbling farmers, Shou Tung (Wei Tung) and Tai Pan (Shih Tien), decide to train and take the fight to Wong. But will their newly acquired skills be any match for his Shaking Eagle technique? Hip-hop's Wu-Tang Clan hosts this 1981 kung fu classic. The cinematography is bad, the story is thin, and the action is incredible. If you can stomach the above, the end action sequence to this film is amazing and the choreography is unmatched.
