Editorial Reviews

Fong Sai Yuk's uninhibited arrogance toward a Manchu lord forces him to seek refuge in a Shaolin temple. Although abundantly trained in the martial arts, he is no match for Master San Te, the creator of the 36th Chamber of Shaolin. Exhausted by his frequent defeats, Fong seeks to escape his prison and crosses paths with a governor, who rewards him with a yellow robe granting immunity from any Manchu. But what are the governor's true intentions? Will Fong feed his foolish ego and betray the Shaolin Temple?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Way to End the Trilogy December 16, 2010
This is the third movie in the series of the 36th Chamber of Shaolin Series.Now Instead of Gordon Liu being the lead,Hsiao Ho is the Main character.He plays legendary hero Fong Sai Yuk of Fong Shi Yu which has been played by many famous actors like Jet Li,Alexander Fu Sheng,Meng Fei,Willie Chi Tin Sang.The movie is once again directed by Lau Kar Leung and it has many famous actors like Venom's Sun Chien,Jason Piao,Lee Hoi San I wont include the plot but trust me if its distributed by Dragon Dynasty you better believe you are watching a classic this movie was made after 8 diagram Pole fighter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hsiao Hou as a Rebellious Fong Sai Yuk February 19, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Hsiao Hou stars in the 3rd chapter of the 36th Chamber series. Also starring is Gordon Liu, who takes a supporting lead in this last part of the trilogy.

Fang Shiyu/Fong Sai Yuk (Hsiao Hou) is the rebellious son of a martial arts woman. So rebellious that he is kept bound at all times (even in school) for fear that he may get into trouble. Fang Shiyu is not a bright young man, in fact, he is so headstrong and uncontrollable he must attend class with younger students who look to be in first or second grade while his own peers sit in the next class. Fang Shiyu's behavior and overall thick-headedness leads to problems when he misinterprets the intentions of a monk (Gordon Liu), and pursues him at a Manchu gym for a fight.

In doing so, he brazenly offends a Manchu official and is told he will be beheaded and the local Cantonese gym will be torn down. However, thanks to swift thinking by his doting mother, he is instead, sent to the Shaolin 36th chambers where he ends up with the same monk.

There, Fong Shiyu gets into more trouble, and is constantly reminded by the wisdom and skill of his superior that he still has a lot to learn despite his excellent kung fu. Fang Shiyu means well and has a strong sense of justice. But he's thick, and doesn't listen so of course, Monk San Te (Liu) must do what he can to keep the school out of trouble. This doesn't stop Shiyu from befriending the same Manchu principals who not only wants him dead, but has secretly hatched a deadly plot against the Shaolin Temple,in particular, the 36th Chamber.

Excellent performance by Gordon Liu, he looks like a monk, and there is something regal about him. He is very believable in this role and I like him much better here than in the original 36th Chambers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Devoted distribution of derivation by Dragon Dynasty November 23, 2012
By Mantis
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The 3rd film in director Lau Kar Leung's (Legend of the Drunken Master) trilogy about Shaolin monk San Te and his secular school of martial arts, differs from "Return to the 36th Chamber" in that actor Gordon Liu (Kill Bill) comes back to the role of San Te and it's much more of a direct sequel to the original "36th Chamber of Shaolin". This was also one of the last films for the infamous Shaw Bros. studio and gives the viewer a little insight into why the lucrative-for-decades studio was having problems, as this movie updated fight choreography but just about everything else is embarrassingly dated for the mid-'80s.

After a fun and explanatory fight-based prologue, Hsiao Hou ("My Young Auntie") plays mischievous and proficient kung fu expert Fong Sai Yuk. After getting into some serious trouble with the Manchus, his mother (Lily Li Li, "Shaolin Mantis") and step-father send him and his brothers to the Shaolin Temple to avoid execution and learn discipline from San Te (Liu). The problem is that the grueling training that Shaolin offers is no match for the robusticity of Sai Yuk. He is almost San Te's equal and has plenty of energy after the day's exercises to sneak out and venture into town for more trouble.

If one can pretend that this was made in the late-'70s, it's liabilities decrease significantly and one can just enjoy it as an old-school fu-flick. It's got some groovy things to offer. Fans of Gordon Liu may be disappointed that he's not the main character but he's still got plenty of screen time and physically, Hsiao Hou delivers as much grace, agility and effortlessness (see also "Mad Monkey Kung Fu") as anyone, including Yuen Biao. His character is a little annoying and impetuous, but that's what happens when you're that young and that good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Kung Fu Movie August 14, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you've seen either of the first two movies in the series you should know what to expect. I thought this was better than the second film in the series, but not quite as good as the first. Either way it was very good.

The first one in the series was way better than this one. The only major fighting scene was the one at the end. There just wasn't enough fighting scenes for me in this one. Read more
