Storyline

At the rise of the Ching Dynasty, a Ming Princess is saved from capture by a loyal officer, Si Lin, who takes her to Shaolin Temple for protection. But the Ching General, Wong, pursues them there. Wong is a master of drunken boxing, and to confront him Si Lin must learn the style from a Shaolin monk who once befriended Wong. Finally, Wong, tired of playing cat-and-mouse with the monks, assaults the Temple with his army in a pitched battle.... Written by winner55

Amusing, energetic, great martial arts
31 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For some reason this fine old Joseph Kuo feature disappeared for a while. But it is available on DVD, and if you enjoy old-school kung-fu flicks, I think you will find this highly entertaining. The characters are all likable, the martial arts exquisite, the endangered-princess storyline a classic. It's very fast paced, and moves well between episodes of fighting, occasional fits of comedy, and there's even a touch of drama in the relationship between one of the monks and an old friend who has since become a nasty Ching general. The final battle is a wild mêlée and the ending teeters on the tragic without falling over the cliff. This is a film to enjoy again and again.
