Surprisingly Good Movie From Taiwan
1 March 2013 | by ebiros2See all my reviews

This is a classic kung-fu format movie that's surprisingly entertaining and well made.

A tyrannical emperor kills the family of anyone that he suspects is not in alignment with his ways. Two girls who were orphaned by these killing, gets picked up by a monk in Shaolin temple, and grows up to be accomplished fighters. They go to avenge their parent's death by seeking out the emperor.

I'm usually not so impressed by Taiwan produced movies from this era due to their bad directing, and production. But this movie seems to be of format familiar to them, and the end product came out just fine.

Chia Ling plays the lead, and Carter Wong plays one of the co-leads. There're funny moments in this movie where two gorillas are part of the army of the emperor, and the sisters have to defeat them by attacking their weak spot. There are few other surprises in this movie, but somehow they don't turn out ridiculous, and adds to the movie.

Chia Ling is one of the famous female kung fu actress of the time, and she's beautiful in this movie. She can also move, and put on excellent fight scenes.

This is a very entertaining movie, and is recommended for viewing.
