One of the better old-school kung fu films
27 December 2000 | by drngorSee all my reviews

I had read two reviews on this film before I saw it: one review highly recommended it and another criticized the lack of kicking from Hwang Jang Lee, the Korean super-kicker. I found myself agreeing with the former. I thought it was a really good martial arts film in the Drunken Master vein. The acrobatics performed by the leads are excellent. The choreography is very complex, but never too slow. Hwang gets to show off his excellent legwork, more so than I was led to believe. He does some great kicks in the long finale. There were some violent moments that I didn't care for. Overall, a fine kung fu movie.
