Good Kung Fu But Disturbing on Some Levels.
24 June 2006 | by Space_MafuneSee all my reviews

After their village is destroyed by an evil gang of murderous bandits named the Nine Devils, a group of around thirty children from the ages of 5 to 18 years old flee into the woods with the Nine Devils in hot pursuit. Fortunately the kids are found by a pair of Shaolin monks who see it as their duty to protect them but noting the numbers and odds are against them, the monks decide they better train the youngsters in the art of Shaolin Kung Fu so they will be able to defend themselves if need be. Once their training is complete though, the kids decide to seek a measure of revenge...

While this movie may have some child-like moments of humor, it's really not suitable for kids at all. Its violence is brutal and the Nine Devils really don't hold back when battling with the youngsters, who are simply amazing given the amount of stunt work they do and the considerable physical abuse and punishment their roles demand. Also the resulting brutality when the kids take the fight to the Nine Devils gang in the end is not always easy to watch and frequently disturbs as it's little kids often dishing out said bloody vengeance. Certainly not your usual Kung Fu film and surprisingly entertaining and interesting in that respect if one can get past this one's sometimes shocking content.
