Burning Paradise is one tite action movie. All, the cinematography was great and the strong character development. There is a lot of blood and gore in the movie, one memorable one when a outraged Shaolin student was fighting with the woman ninja-type bodyguard, and spikes came out of the bridge, exploding through his legs. The plot was good. The only thing I wasn't really satisfied with was the action choreography. Man, Chris Lee can't direct action. He's incomparable to Yuen Woo-ping and his troup of "brothers", or Ching Siu-tung. Plus, Chris Lee is a rookie and there's only one action director and that's always worse. The fight sequences are so slow you can actually follow their movements in combat. Also, the movie took place mostly in the Red Lotus Temple, and it gets boring, not scary, there. You just see too much of it. Anyway, I'd give it a four since there were so many positive comments about the movie from other reviewers that compensate for my negative ones.

Burning Paradise stands on it's own as an unique piece of HK movie magic. The hero of the story is the legendary "Fong Sai Yuk" a rebellious and headstrong shaolin monk. The story revolves around the attempts of the "Red Lotus Clan" to wipe out the "Shaolin Temple". A Deadly Prison laden with traps is built by the Clan's leader as a symbol of hell and the monks are captured and imprisoned therein. The movie deals with the monks attempts to escape and contains some great characters. The Clan's leader is a mad artist (the actor who plays him is an artist in reality) and other Clan members include a traitor from the shaolin camp that must battle "fong sai yuk" and a female ninja type of guard who loves him. The cinematography is slick and their are some great action sequences and character development, lot's of fire is incoporated into this "living hell" making for many dramatic scenes. This film was made with a very high budget in HK terms but lost out at the box office - perhaps due to some rash comments Ringo Lam made about the Tianneman Square massacre which were misunderstood/taken badly by the public at large who decided not to see his movie. All in All, "Burning Paradise" should be seen by any fan of Hong Kong Cinema, it's a good story with plenty of adventure, romance, tragedy, betrayel etc. - add it to your basket!

This is a movie which I recently purchased at the store using the old, if Tai-Seng boxed it then it must be a decent movie strategy, and it was.The main character here is named Fong Sai Yuk,but believe me this character has absolutley nothing to do with Jet Li's character(this guy is a shaolin monk) so I don't know if it is a different interpretation of the hero or if the name is by coincidence.Anyway this is a good movie for any of those people who complain about chinese humor(which I enjoy) or any other silliness in Kung-fu movies because there is none here,just a straight forward serious tone script about a group called the Red Lotus Sect who enslaves monks in their temple.On the downside though this movie takes place all inside the temple after Fong is captured by the sect,so this movie really reminds me of Dragon Inn where the movie takes place in all one environment,good thing this movie encorporates alot of action which saves its dreary setting and the fights are very plentiful,the fights can be a mixed bag though,while some are staged perfectly others in-between seem as though they slacked off a bit, but as a whole the action gets at least a good B grade,a great aspect of this movie though is its special efects(no short budget here)alot of great pyrothecnics,none of the stab the fake dummy tricks,and alot of awesome looking dismemberments and flying projectiles which show this movie was no cheapo production.In all I enjoyed this movie, but actually like movies that can at least be light hearted for a few minutes and would have liked to see more scenery,but if your into more serious movies this is the one for you.
