One of the top two or three martial arts movies ever made,
This review is from: The Prodigal Son [DVD] (DVD)
I have waited for some time for Prodigal Son to be released and as usual I have not been disappointed by the superb package put together by Hong Kong Legends. The film looks as if it was shot yesterday and not over twenty years ago. The extras are well thought out and enhance the overall enjoyment of the film. All too often extras are nothing more than pointless add ons.
As a student of wing chun it is a joy to watch perhaps the only film which demonstrates this particular style. Whilst not as cinamatic as wushu and devoid of wire work, Sammo Hung has created a coherent and above all entertaining film.
Prodigal Son stands alongside Fist of Fury, Fist of a Legend and Enter the Dragon as one one the very best "real" martial arts movies ever made.
