Non-stop action for a kung fu film, but none of it really stands out
4 December 2016 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

REVENGE OF THE SHAOLIN MASTER is an action-packed Taiwanese kung fu flick with an ordinary story bolstered by an absolute ton of fight scenes. Unfortunately in a film like this the quality of the action makes or breaks the production and I found it a bit lacklustre here. There's so much of it that none of it really stands out despite the presence of Yuen Woo-ping working on the fight choreography. Perhaps he was learning the ropes here because it's not one of the better productions he's worked on.

The tale is about a gang of robbers who have been stealing food and supplies meant for an area stricken by famine. Dorian Tan is the heroic lead, an upstanding constable tasked with bringing the criminals to book, and a wealth of low-rent fight action follows. Tan was one of the better fighters from the period with a natural skill that shines through, but his acting always seems very wooden which is not helped by the fact that pretty much all of his films are dubbed in the west. Chen Sing plays in support.
