Customer Reviews

Love the Tiger Crane techniques used in this movie... I have already watched it several times and can't get enough.
James
Executioners from Shaolin has some of the most glaring problems of martial-arts films in general, and blows those problems up to spectacularly bad proportions.
D. Mok
Other than these problems, the movie developed very slowly, but was not a total waste, because the scenes with Pai-Ma were all pretty good.

actually reasons, and big ones at that. It's not panned and scanned, it is presented in 16:9 format. Which I actually prefer over letterbox, if I had a big screen, I would probably take the letterbox, but this is to peoples advantage if you have around a 25 inch tv like me. Also another big plus is that unlike groundzero, you will be getting beautiful remastering job with no scratches, and I guarantee that. Now the sound is really the inly thing that they could have improved on. It only has 2-channel english language but the sound quality is still very good and won't fluxuate throughout the movie. The sound does change slightly but only because during the action, they just use original language track, but whenever they shift to speech, they have the john wayne sound-a-like AND COMPANY WHO DO ALL THE OLD SCHOOL AND NEW SCHOOL FOR THAT MATTER. So get ready for the same old voices, but again the sound shifts but is barely noticeable, I'm just a nitpicker. So overall it's worth the 3-5 dollars more.

Now the movie itself is absolutely wonderful. It has the great Chen Kuan Tai playing one of the last disciples after their shaolin temple was burned down. The movie starts with an introduction of how Pai Mei became a traitor and decided to help the ching's. It show's the head abbot of shaolin in a duel with pai mei and show his special kung fu internal style. Externally is shown just as well. I honestly can't think of a greater actor to play the traitor of the ming's. So in the next fight we get the greatest cameo of gordon liu's career. I had actually forgotten that this guy is a great actor until watching this and shaolin challenges ninja again. Now the action is made up of about 5 scenes.

What can you say about a classic? I've owned this movie for a long time and bought it again when I saw it was remastered. The only flaw in this movie is that there aren't enough fights. The story is interesting and easy to follow with Chen Kuan Tai as the legendary Hung Hsi Kuan who escapes the burning Shaolin temple, marries Lily Li, an expert at Crane style and tries to perfect his own Tiger style to take revenge on the white-eyebrow priest, Pai Mei (Lo Lieh).

This is also (one of) the legend(s) of how Hung-Gar kung fu came to be. The style practiced by the illustrious Wong Fei Hung and the film's director, Lau Kar Leung.

The presentation is nice and clean and makes a big difference. It's not quite as crisp as some of Shaw's other restorations but I can't possibly imagine anyone complaining about it. This movie is also proof that refinement and beauty still existed in the popular culture of the 70's. Recommended.

Executioners from Shaolin has all the trappings of a classic Shaw Brothers film, but I was a tad disappointed by the large breaks in the action sequences. A large chunk of the film revolves around the lightning fast courtship, wedding, and subsequent child rearing of Hung Hsi Kuan and Lily Li. Oddly edited without transitions or conventional "5 months later" , "10 years later" type cards, you have to sort of roll with the punches ( yeah, I said it ) but it's well worth the ride.

Essentially the film is building up to a series of fights with Pai Mei and these are the moments you buy the DVD for, and they are well worth it. You can easily see why Tarantino wanted to include the character in his own Kill Bill films.

As for the DVD's presentation, it's really flawless. The audio is crisp and clean, the dubs are classic, all the fight sounds are included and visually it looks as though you're looking at the first print of the film! The only thing you could as for aside from that (considering that the film is shot well before the concept of DVD extras) are trailers, and there are a few included.

Executioners from Shaolin seems to me to be a classic example of a standard Shaw Brothers kung fu flick. While it's not the best one out there, it does deliver a pretty good story with all the delicious cliché's of vengeance. The movie centers on a man who is dedicated to his Tiger fighting style while his eventual wife is equally as dedicated to her Crane fighting style.

The man's master has been slain by the legendary priest Pai Mei (later featured in the Kill Bill movies). He vows justice and hones his skills for more than a decade, dedicated to exact revenge. Although it's a little lighter on the action, the kung fu in this movie is still pretty great, but this is a more story driven Shaw Bros movie that develops on more than you may expect.

If you like classic Kung-Fu, then this movie would be considered essential viewing. The beginning is a bit slow but worth the wait. The movie also has a weird part in which the lead characters son is raised as a woman. With that out of the way, the rest of the movie is great. It's worth the price of admission just to watch the son train on the, "Metal Budda-Esque Meridian Marble Machine?" Wow! Also great enemy to fight at the end. The movie is sure to entertain, great choreography and great sets made by movie company. Make sure you get a remastered version so the sound is good.
