Storyline

When the going gets tough, the tough start throwing! Members of the government are using their position to rob and steal, so it's up to a young Kung Fu expert (Jacky Lee) to stop them, using the secret techniques of the Shaolin. But when he runs into even tougher opponents, he's forced to learn more Shaolin training -- including the 5 Animals style -- so he can defeat the dreaded One Braid Killer, who's out to kill our hero and his allies.

Absolutely Absurd. But I love it.
23 September 2006 | by moptoptonySee all my reviews

I really don't know what to think about this film. I don't know if it's a lame attempt at a serious kung fu movie or a low-budget parody. But I do know that I've rarely laughed as hard as I did when I saw this movie for the first time. It's a shame that the movie is so rare. My friend found it in Wal-Mart (ha, of all places...) and bought it for less than two dollars. But, good Lord, what a find. If anyone ever finds this film again, and happens to read this review before watching it, let me say this: Do not take this movie seriously. Whether the humor is crafted or unintentional (or both, for that matter,) just regard this movie light-heartedly. It's a blast.
