The "Kung Fu" is far from fury, yawn.
2 May 2019 | by ckormos1See all my reviews

It starts with a sniper shoots a businessman who just stepped out of the hotel onto the sidewalk. Cut to Pai Ying displays emotional instability with his lady friend. Paul Chin Pui is investigating at the scene of the murder.

The first fight is a short brawl with six guys at the junk yard. One guy runs off but Pai Ying was waiting on a roof top to kill him. He returns to his girl to find a loan shark is demanding payment from her with intimate interest. His emotional instability is getting worse. They go out dancing. Fast forward past the world's scariest stripper.

Many of these old movies have multiple titles due to releases in different countries and for VHS rentals. The original title here is "The Yellow Killer". The USA release for VHS rentals was "Kung Fu - ry!". It was titled in UK as "From Bangkok with Orders to Kill". My copy has Italian credits but is dubbed in English. I always start my reviews with a description of the opening scene so the reader/viewer can confirm we are talking about the same movie.

After watching this once I know I will never watch it again. It is certainly an action drama movie and not a martial arts movie. The fights are fist fights and then the bad guys remember they can use hand guns about half way through. I rate it as below average and do not recommend it.
