most ridiculous kung fu ever (but in a good way)
30 August 2002 | by zelig77See all my reviews

this is my favorite kung fu movie of all time! and i have seen more than a few. it is totally absurd, implausible, and incoherant, but that's what i look for in a great kung fu movie!!! watch for the following scenes: 1.the old woman ramblin on for about 5 straight minutes about "this man is my son" 2.sonny chibas girlfriend taking out two guys with her hair as a weapon 3.ridiculously stupid stunts, too numerous to mention 4.sonny and his sidekick managing to elude several dozen men with automatic weapons, who are running maybe 20 ft behind them! this included the impossible act of making a bow and arrow, using his arm,a piece of string, and a twig! 5.the highlight of the movie, however, is the slow motion fight between sonny chiba, and 5 men who are possesed by monkeys! the matrix stole this fight scene, i swear to god! it is so cool looking, and i keep my copy cued up to this scene! if you love kung fu, MST3K, and monkeys, then seek out this classicly stupid movie! its fun!!
