Customer Review

on 26 April 2012
Shaolin vs Lama is an absolute gem of a kung fu movie and if you don't already own a copy, I would recommend you buy one immediately. The basic plot is a skilled kung fu practitioner goes around challenging masters looking to improve himself and learn from somebody better. During the course of this pursuit Lo Rei (this guy is amazing!) is helped by a young monk he helps, who guides him to a Shaolin Temple to help him learn from one of the senior monks. Eventually he's taken as a student to learn how to defeat the villain of the movie. There's plenty of comical moments but most notably this film is filled with incredible, acrobatic and intense kung fu that is just a joy to watch. If only they still made movies like this! Shaolin vs Lama is literally action packed and isn't long before the next training sequence or fight.

Unfortunately there is only an English language dub but this movie is just so good that you look past the flaws purely on the strength of entertainment on offer. The picture quality could be much better and it's a shame it's in full screen (4:3) but like the audio it doesn't detract from the sheer viewing pleasure of some fantastic kung fu thrills. Based on this DVD alone you should add this to your collection immediately. However should we be fortunate enough to see a properly remastered anamorphic widescreen release and given the "Hong Kong Legends" DVD treatment, I'll be first in line to upgrade this masterpiece of kung fu cinema. Fantastic!
