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

great fun
30 March 2011 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

Another Ching-vs-Shaolin conflict film, this one has a young princess sheltered at the temple with a dedicated soldier to protect her, and a slew of earnest monks to teach him their special kung-fu styles.

One of the most out-right fun martial arts pics of its era. The heroes are all bold determination and wide-eyed wonder, the monks perform with wit and energy - even the villainous general has an attractive side to him, an undeniable charm. The pace is furious and the martial arts action never lets up - it's by Joseph Kuo, one of the legendary non-Shaw directors of the 'chop-socky' era, who really knew how to work Buddhist themes into his films.

Particularly love the interpretation of drunken boxing in this film. Highly recommended.
