3.0 out of 5 stars Don't mess with the kung fu grandma!! March 24, 2008
By morgoth
Format:DVD
OK, I don't really know how to do this review. I should give a SPOILER ALERT right away, because the part I want to talk about is the final fight of the movie. The story is about 3 guys who are after Jimmy Wang Yu's dad. They try to kill his dad, so Wang Yu kills them. But the mother of these 3 guys is a super tough old lady. In the final fight, Wang Yu gets in his car and runs her over like 4 times, and it looks totally real!! I can't believe it, but it looks like they actually run her over. Not only does Wang Yu run her over, he stops the car right on her, then peels out on her stomach!! I think it may be a stunt double, but I'm still not sure. The movie is bad, but there are enough good cheesy moments to get you through it. And the final fight has to be seen to be believed.

The movie also stars Lung Fei, Yasuaki Kurata, Shan Mao and Eddy Ko. The kung fu grandma's name is Tse Gam-Guk.

2.5/5

The picture quality on the Pathfinder DVD is really good, especially for a movie from 1973. English and Chinese dubs sound good. There's a good commentary track, and a great 10 minute interview with Wang Yu where he talks about the movie and what is was like to work with the kung fu grandma. What else could you want?

4.0 out of 5 stars Did it meet my expectations... September 23, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'd have to say it exceeded them. Sure, it was going to be straight-up 70's basher shlock....

Except it isn't. It's more so. From the first moments, the movie is very, VERY 70's. Not just the wockicha-wockicha soundtrack, but the whiplash-inducing jump cuts, the ZOOOOOOMing in for reaction closeups, and dear lord in heaven the clothes. Obviously, an action movie from the 70's is going to have these touches, but it seems like KNIGHT-ERRANT is truly, madly, deeply committed to the era of its birth. It wasn't a conscious decision on the filmmaker's part - "hey let's make this thing ULTRA-70's, it'll be a hoot for people watching it in 40 years" - but there's no denying the effect is there. This movie wasn't made to be a work of art, it was made to entertain, and it does, and even more so for its bone-crushing embracing of its times.

Wang Yu is a good-guy cab driver, quick to hand out an ass-whuppin' to anyone who needs it, but he's not the target of this pretty standard revenge story. The Japanese baddies (including Kurata Yasuaki) are after Wang Yu's dad for his part in their father's disgrace and seppuku back in WWII - Wang Yu is just in their way. For much of the movie's first half we watch the three antagonists train under the tender tutelage of the true star of the film (or at least the co-star), Tse Gam Guk.

And Tse is the real reason this movie is more than just "okay, not bad." A portly old lady in a kimono laughing off being repeatedly run over by a car (WHILE IT'S HAPPENING!) makes ANYTHING better. While not the level of craziness you'll find in MASTER OF THE FLYING GUILLOTINE, Tse's "Lady with a iron fist!" [sic] delivers the level of crazy you expect from a mid-70's Wang Yu pic.
