This movie is literally breathtaking!!
14 April 2001 | by Carolm-1See all my reviews

This is by far one of the best kung fu movies I have ever seen,and I own alot of them. Eddy Ko and Cassanova Wong star in this film, but Jen Shi Kwan is the main attraction. The fighting is excellent throughout the movie, but the last fight against Jen Shi Kwan is mind blowing! I've seen him in a few other movies like 36 Crazy Fist which was good, but The Master Strikes takes the cake. Feng Ke-An, and Hwang Jang Lee are still my favorite martial artist, but Jen Shi Kwan is right up there with them. If you run across this film buy it!
