HASH(0x9137dab0) out of 5 stars VideoAsia wrecks another great movie! 12 Jun. 2005
By Martial Arthur - Published on
Format: DVD
INVINCIBLE ARMOUR is a GREAT old school kung fu flick. It has a tight little plot with mystery twists, and a cast of familiar martial arts greats. HOWEVER, the kung fu kid is correct! While the picture image is very clear, there IS a noticable speed delay during every single fight! This ruins the whole experience. You can't appreciate the athletic skills of the performers since everything looks slowed down. That reviewer who mentioned that this version is better than the Xenon vhs print because it is uncut is only half right. It's nice to see the missing footage (I believe it's the Yuen Biao & Ugly Yuen vs. John Liu fight), but at least the vhs print ran at normal speed so the fights awed you. I've noticed that VideoAsia is a hit and miss company. They put out a lot of great titles, but some have speed delays/some don't, some have extra features/others have none or the same extra features as other titles, and some automatically jump to the unnecessary Insta-Action mode while playing so you have to stop and adjust your dvd player. INVINCIBLE ARMOUR then is one of their botched efforts. It is a superior kung fu movie, but this is a disappointing version. It may be the best dvd of the film available, but big deal since the speed-altering of the fight scenes make them less enjoyable. Hope somebody else puts it out the right way.

HASH(0x937c6390) out of 5 stars The Best I've Seen In The Genre 13 May 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Invincible Armor is packed with excellent action scenes and humorously dubbed dialogue. The main star is an amazing athlete. He can hold a pot above his head with his arm fully extended straight in the air, then shatter the pot with a kick that is as high as his own out stretched hand. With other gung fu movies, I have found myself fast-forwarding through talking parts to get to the fight scenes, which are few and far between. This movie, however, is good throughout and both the talking and action scenes are entertaining. It has a more intricate plot than most karate films. If you like action movies set in feudal China/Japan where they talk of honor, venerate elders, grow their eyebrows really bushy, jump 15 feet in the air, perform "1 inch punches," read gung fu technique manuals, train in isolation, and fight to the death, you will love Invincible Armor!

By Winston Fraser - Published on

The eagle claw combined with the invincible amour is definitely unbeatable this one of Jonh Lui better movies and with a cast with the likes of silver fox this is an entertaining martial art conspiracy, lots of action great technique, lets be real chinese movies is not noted for original creative story lines and great realistic acting skills forget that!!!! if you want a good action pack martial arts movie this will definitely satistfy your taste, one of the best eagle claw techniques diplayed on screen a must to any collector laterz folks.

HASH(0x90e075d0) out of 5 stars TWO GREAT FIGHTERS--ONE GREAT MOVIE 27 May 2008
By Karen Shaub - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Before we get into our story we're told about the nature of the Invincible Armor. It seems that once you've mastered this style, which is the most difficult to learn, you become all but impervious to swords and spears let alone the efforts of mere human beings. To accomplish this one learns to control air circulation throughout one's body through strenuous breath exercises. There are also 108 pressure points, 36 of which are fatal. There may also be an herbal bath involved of the type Fang Shih-Yu's mother gave him.

But our villain isn't that simplistic, because as the credits roll we also see that he's into Eagle Claw and we get a crash course on that as well, which I will spare you, except to say that it was developed during the Ming period by Yu Fei and concentrates its attacks on bones, muscles, sinews, and the more fragile joints. Our villain is the fearsome Huang Cheng-Li and he doesn't really need any of this stuff, but he's got it!

Well! Our story finally gets underway with General Chow Lu-Fung (played by John Liu) witnessing a lone man ward off an attack by a group of armed thugs. Impressed by the man's skill, the General introduces himself, asks the man's name, and inquires if he may see the sword the man had not even bothered to draw during the fight. The man, Hu Feng, claims to be a peasant, but the General says no mere peasant could fight that well.

The General is very impressed by the the peasant's skill and tells him that he is recruiting warriors to help the famous Mr Loo, the Minister of Royal Security, in his on going duties to defend the Ming dynasty. Hu Feng is honored and they both toast the long life of the Mings.

Some time shortly there after the General and Hu Feng call upon the Security Minister to see if Mr. Loo is as impressed with him as the General is. But all does not go as planned, for Hu Feng is really an assassin sent to kill Minister Loo and frame the General, and that is exactly what happens! The General escapes of course, and all the provinces are notified that he is a wanted man to be killed on sight.

Worse yet Shen Yu (Don Wong-Dao) is brought in to hunt him down. He has a personal stake in this as well since he was very close to the Minister.

Okay, up to this point there's been a lot of exposition and precious few fights, but once the sushi hits the fan you will definitely stay awake because John Liu and Huang Cheng-Li are two of the most formidable old school fighters on the planet--and when you throw Do Wong-Dao into the mix you have something that is really worth watching. And, let's face it, that's what you're really here for. (I just always like to give a lengthy intro so that people know whether or not they have already seen a film.)

Now there has been some discussion about the quality of the Video Asia images in the fight scenes, specifically in regards to the speed. Some have said that the film speeds up, some have said that film slows down, some have reported a strobe light effect. I noticed nothing drastic, only a slight blurring in one of the early scenes which I might not have noticed at all if I hadn't been LOOKING for something strange. Otherwise I found the quality of the DVD to quite acceptable overall. I also found the movie to be 10 minutes longer than the box said it was, another Video Asia problem. Lengths on this film run from 90 to 101 to 110 minutes--its just the luck of the draw which one you get.

HASH(0x907f8204) out of 5 stars great classic movie 27 April 2009
By R. Moliere - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Great movie!!! I dont know what the other people down there are talking about but the dvd i got was good and the action was not slowed down or sped up at all. The only issue was I had to turn up my audio alot to hear the movie normally. Halfway into the movie my ears adjusted and I didnt even notice it. Great leg work by john liu in this movie.
