If it worked before then keep piling it on
30 March 2017 | by ckormos1See all my reviews

A monk fights numerous ninja types over the opening credits then declares his intent to rule Shaolin. Next, meet the four Shaolin monk brothers and big brother laments that teacher won't allow him to be a monk also. They cross a court official delivering an order to the abbot. It gets all political and the abbot refuses to accept the order. He puts up a fine fight but as the jingle goes "nothing beats a great pair of tits". Our guys are framed for killing the abbot but they escape with the sutra. The bad guy wants the sutra more than to rule Shaolin. They pick up a girl then they are off. The rest is a chase where every type of situation, fight, and weapon are thrown at them.

Overall, for the year and genre and for Alexander Lo Rei, this is as good as it gets. Other stars and directors were remaking the genre, but here they are just sticking to what worked for the past 20 years. The result is – I give it a "fans only" slightly above average recommendation.

My copy is an Ocean Shores VHS converted to a digital file. The color and resolution are as good as it gets for that medium. It is also English dubbed by the A list voice actors.
