Not So Magnificent Kung Fu Commandos
16 January 2003 | by Space_MafuneSee all my reviews

Basically a bunch of oddballs are recruited by a Kung Fu master named Master Sher(John Liu) to be trained for a truly deadly, dangerous and somewhat suicidal rescue mission. "Don't push them so hard Master..they'll come to hate you."

"I don't want them to die..that's all." At first these guys are laughably inept and downright embarrassing to their master but after one particular embarrassing defeat at the local brothel they come to realize the value of the knowledge the master possesses and finally become serious about becoming trained fighters and show considerable improvement in attitude as well as skill as the time approaches to undertake the mission. The ending to this otherwise fun film is unfortunately rather dark and takes away from the enjoyment although there are two very entertaining if somewhat lengthy kung fu battles as a result of this.
