Old skool 70's kung fu,with the great Hwang Jang lee playing the bad guy as usual,hard to follow dozy plot about some rare kung fu book on 'the 36 deadly styles' terrible film quality and dubbing,slow chreographed kung fu action,apart from a few moments of Hwang jang lee doing his bad guy kicking routine.All in all a poor low budget kung fu,if you want to see Hwang jang lee at his best in quality old skool movies,check out invincible armour,snake in the eagles shadow etc.This is one to avoid, without Hwang jang, id have struggled to give this 1 star.

Okay, well here goes nothing trying to write s synopsis for this nonsense...
A young man is pursued by thugs, his uncle helps him as best he can, but together they are clearly no match for the 4 goons. Still being hunted, soon they stumble across a Shaolin Temple, where the uncle seems to be brothers with a renegade monk there, who then becomes involved in the tussle..
In the meantime a loon with flowing white hair seems to be randomly killing kung fu men, and it appears he has some affiliation with the bad guys from the beginning, not too mention Mark Long's 'Ghost Face Killer', who very briefly seems to be trying to get hold of knowledge regarding The 36 Deadly Styles training manual.
Back to where we were, and another tough bad guy bursts onto the scene and together (along with the original thugs) storm the temple. Leaving the young man having to find a new kung fu teacher to train him ready for revenge...

This film makes no sense at all. The story seems to have been cobbled together from at least 2, possibly even up to 4 different movies. Some of the fight action is really good, where at other times, it leaves you wondering if the same crew are still working on the picture. The theme tune for The Pink Panther pops up, which created a smile, and so does Ghost Face Killer (Mark Long), in a solitary fight, which is probably the highlight of the entire film, with his brother Jack Long.. This possibly also has the dubious honour of having some of the poorest wigs in Hong Kong martial arts film history, which believe you me, is saying something. Bolo Yung's wig being the worst offender, seemingly plaited from tiny strings of dog poo.
There's also a lot of feeble, torturous humour on offer here, much of it aimed at the Shaolin monks, who it displays as total berks.

I really don't know what to say about this film that is positive. Hwang Jang Lee didn't make for a great villain, as he really should. The movie doesn't feature much in the way of great kung fu and overall I can't really remember much about the movie at all. It's instantly forgettable. There's lots of terrific movies to spend your money on on Amazon... Why not try Return of the Five Deadly Venoms (Crippled Avengers), Shaolin Rescuers, 36 Chamber's Of Shaolin, Eight Diagram Pole Fighter's or maybe Heroes of the East.. all worth adding to your kung fu collection unlike this movie.
