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.Read more ›
