Editorial Reviews

With money, even ghosts can be made to push grindstone". This Chinese saying accurately describes how Chien Tung uses his riches to get his evil ways. And what he cant buy he uses force to get. Only one man does not bow to Chiens money or fists; Fighter Chuang Yen. He lives in the countryside operating a small clinic to help the poor. Aiding him are his daughter and two servants, who also study Kung Fu from him.

Fearing a threat to his rule, Chien Tung hires a renowned champion fighter Hung Ying to eliminate Chuang Yen. First they set about to frame Chuang's student to thin out the problem. One disciple is accused of rape and kills himself to avoid disgracing his master.

Chaung and the remaining students flee and it is then he teaches them the high level Inferred Fist Boxing style to counter Chien and his cronies.

David Chiang leads an all star cast including many Shaw Studio superstars such as Cheng Lei (Chinese Boxer), Chen Hui Min (Super Ninjas) and also Mark Long, the famed `Ghost Face Killer'.

Wow, I had no idea this movie was going to be so bad. I could tell right away it was going to be bad. Mark Long plays a student of The King of Fists, and he is incredibly annoying. Pearl Chang is good as always. She plays the king's daughter. And David Chiang rounds out this trio. He seems emotionless and gives an average performance at best. The story is incredibly bad, so luckily Chan Wai Man plays a villain. Him and Cliff Ching Ching were literally the only good things about this movie. Cliff Ching Ching played the villain in Ways of Kung Fu and Fighting Ace, and him and Chan Wai Man have a nice little fight. Chan Wai Man is just great in this movie, and it's a shame the rest of the movie is so bad. Danny Lee plays the main villain, the same Danny Lee who has never really proven himself as a good screen fighter. Danny Lee is best known for playing a cop in about 100 movies, including John Woo's The Killer. I guess I should talk about the story, but I am having trouble allowing myself to ever think about it again. It's just so boring. Danny Lee wants The King of Fists dead, and the king's students have to defeat the villains. Unless you are the biggest Chan Wai Man fan in the world, I suggest passing on this.

2/5

Picture quality is pretty good. As long as you don't expect perfection you should be more than happy. Partly widescreen and English dubbed. It says on the back of the DVD case that there are 3 bonus fights, but I couldn't find them. A bad movie like this could have really used at least 1 special feature.

I should make a listmania of all the Rarescope releases, but those things just take forever to make. So instead I will list all of the Rarescope releases here and give my rating for each one.

Morgoth, the guy or girl on top giving a bad review about this movie sounds like like he knows a lot about this movies but I'm not really sure if he really like this kind of movies because of his expectations about a movie like this on "YES BUDDY THESE MOVIES ARE CHEESY" you need to stick to modern Hollywood movies and leave these alone! This movie is great, only if you are a true Hong Kong cinema fan!
