Third greatest martial arts film ever
2 December 2003 | by ledudeSee all my reviews

This is my third favourite film because of the Bruce Lee films (first being Way of the Dragon, Fist of Fury and Game of Death, second being The Big Boss and Enter the Dragon) but enough about Bruce for a moment, I'll just talk about how great this film is among the classic kung-fu c**p. The two fight scenes where Whang Ing-Sik appear in have got to be two of the greatest to grace the cinema screen, much different to the classical style of choreography back then, and scenes that would please even Bruce himself. The fifteen minute fight scene at the end of the film is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, because of the way Whang kicks (using his left foot which most right-footers usually neglect to use during combat) and the hilariousness of when he flying side kicks Jackie Chan and the other guy, and the latter just flies for miles. The rest of the film is moderately funny, with the emperor's pipe scene with Shih Kien fighting Chan and the appearance of Yuen Biao with the stool. Amazing stuff all round
