Undistinguished fight flick from Godfrey Ho
6 July 2016 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

THE DRAGON'S INFERNAL SHOWDOWN is another earlier effort from prolific director Godfrey Ho before he went crazy making ninja cut and paste movies. This one's a Taiwanese/South Korean co-production featuring Bruce Lee imitator Dragon Lee going up against a super-villain who was responsible for the death of his parents. It's a rather undistinguished and sloppy-looking film notable for only a few weird elements to enjoy.

Dragon Lee gives a sub-par performance that leaves something of a void in the centre of the movie, and the guy playing the chief villain is little better (read: wooden). There's some fun from a drunken master in a supporting role, and a handful of bizarre moments that fans are sure to enjoy: the Batman-style buzzer belt is a weird prop, and the bit where Lee oils himself down to fight is oddly homoerotic.

A femme fatale also makes an appearance, and there's a pretty cool nunchuck scene included too. But the fight choreography is very routine and just consists of guys grunting, kicking and punching, repeated endlessly. It's also one of those films where you often see that feet aren't connecting with flesh which ruins the believability somewhat.
