THE 36 DEADLY STYLES is a cheap kung fu film made by Hong Kong producers and shot in Taiwan. It features one of those forgettable story lines about an upstanding young fighter (the bland Nick Cheung) who must train in the martial arts in order to avenge the death of his father at the hands of some nefarious bad guys. The staging is very ordinary and occasionally quite inept, and the title refers to a hidden book of martial arts techniques and a fight between two old masters which has little connection to the rest of the story.

In fact none of this makes particular sense, and for the first hour it's quite the bore. The viewer is treated to the usual round of bland and cheesy comedy and bad dubbing, with some typical fighting thrown into the mix. Things only start kicking off towards the end, when the tag team of Bolo Yeung and Hwang Jang Lee as the master villains show up to kick some backside. Both are bewigged, quite badly; Bolo in particular looks like he's wearing a mop on his head. Still, they enliven the action-packed ending, which is a bit short but still the best part of an overall lacklustre production.
