Product Description

China, 1929. As the Republic crumbles, only the legendary Wudang monks dare to defy the ruthless warlords trafficking in the opium trade. Among them is White Crane (David Carradine, TV's "Kung Fu", Kill Bill ), a master of the martial arts and protector of the innocent. After the drug lords brutally murder his revered teacher, Crane goes to Shanghai seeking vengeance. There in the decadent, urban underworld, he meets and joins forces with a seductive, American cabaret singer (Daryl Hannah, Kill Bill ) to take down the powers of evil in this relentless, action-packed thriller.

As one of David Carradine's last few films to gain wide release prior to his death, it was with some reserve that I - an uninitiated fan to the "Kung Fu" hero's work - put the DVD into my player and gave it a watch, well aware that this was a TV production (although you have to admit that, for a moment, the cover looked like a Dragon Dynasty release). One day later, I'm still not sure how much I like the movie, but I can say with certainty that even at age 72 and on a limited budget, Carradine was capable of giving the likes of Steven Seagal and Jean-Claude Van Damme a run for their money.

The story: set in the mid `30s, White Crane (Carradine, Kill Bill - Volume Two) is a caucasian master at a Wudang martial arts school that's attacked by the forces of the ruthless underground gangster/warlord Khan (Kay Tong Lim, Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story). Left for dead, Crane barely escapes with his life but vows revenge -submerging himself into the Shanghai crime scene in search of Khan. On his quest, he's aided by one of Khan's disillusioned lieutenants (James Taenaka) and an American cabaret songstress (Daryl Hannah, Splash, "Kill Bill") searching for her kidnapped brother.

I don't have nearly enough experience in wuxia cinema to be specific, but without a doubt, there is plenty of inspiration and nods to the golden age of kung fu films, particularly in story structure, motifs, and the insane level of violence.

Alas.....he has returned. Carradine is great. Only he could fill this leading role. The script is clear and intelligent, story line is captivating, camera work is professional, the acting is superb and the martial arts is serious as well as entertaining. And, there are tidbits of historical relevance of the time period. In a modern world of color belts and multi-colored-patched uniforms, televised caged fighting and publicized 10th degree self promotions, this production is refreshing. In Gassho,

KUNG FU KILLER was one of a dozen or dozens of movies in (mostly) post production when he was found murdered
in Bangkok. The US State Department soon after issued a tourist advisory to keep out of Thailand; notably Bangkok.

This film is mixed bag of anachronisms, typical martial arts mayhem and ersatz Chinese culture, nasty warlord, twisted Shaolin monk mysteries and myths mixed with
lightning-fast martial arts. The spiritual beliefs/aspects in TV's KUNG FU, which this film could have been either inspiration or a rationalization for the blood-letting.

Oh, even a sexy singer played by Daryl Hannah.
She sang pretty good, as good as she looked.

The Shanghai location of KFK is ironic, to say the least. especially Kane on a boldly revenge rampage. The film is rife with ludicrous social and historical inaccuracies.
The only real saving grace of KFK is Carradine's stoic, spiritual monuments. He was a victim of the product's script, direction and apparently, budget restrictions.

If one can see the humor of the juxtapositions and inaccuracies, it can add a star or two, and the over-all action is pure adrenalin. I'll add three stars for Carradine's
maybe anguished 'the show must go on' presence with the frequent corn, cliches and creative gaffs. It must have been quite a come down from KILL BILL, the TV series
and his so unorthodox career and personal life. It was amazing the grace and drama of his martial arts skills came from his earlier career as a dancer. Just as 'Duncan
McCloud of the Clan McCloud, AKA The Highlander.

I'm keep my KFK DVD has a homage to him. Too bad he hadn't had better scripts and directors like another movie great who just passed on, Peter O'Toole.

This interesting (Kung Fu Killer) and action packed DVD stars the late David Carradine and Daryl Hannah, who looks older in this film, but is still a very beautiful woman. I have always been a fan of David Carradine and used to watch his old Kung Fun T.V series and also loved the movie Circle of Iron; however I did not realize he made several other martial arts films.

This film takes place in China in 1929 and begins with a scene inside a Wudang monks training temple, where the vicious criminals kill numerous monks including the chief instructor who was White Crane's teacher. When White Crane's (Carradine) Kung-Fu teacher is killed by ruthless drug lords he becomes determined to seek justice and joins forces Daryl Hannah who is a cabaret singer in a gangster's club.

If you are looking for some great acting this film is not for you, but if you enjoy lots of martial arts action you may want to check out this DVD. I found it to be entertaining.

Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: The Samurai Soul: An old warrior's poetic tribute).
