This is actually a re-editing of a 1980 TV series, hence why the plot is thin and it feels like it was spliced together from disparate parts. Apparently Chinese distributors think that Western audiences can't handle full-length movies or entire TV series and that we only watch Kung Fu movies for the Kung Fu as they do this to a lot of movies and TV series that they release as movies. On that basis alone, I give it a 1 star rating and advise you to seek out the original.

I am a big fan of kung-fu movies so when I saw this I had to watch it. I figured it would be good since it is new. Also it has Yuen Biao in it who I loved in the Once Upon a Time in China series. After watching the movie which I could barely do, I was disappointed. This is one of the worst kung fu movies I have seen and any fan of kung fu movies knows there are a ton of bad ones. I prefer bad '70s kung fu movies to this. It seems to have taken little parts and scenes from a lot of movies to make this one. I thought the picture quality wasn't that good, the plot wasn't original, and the fight scenes were done poorly. It seems as if a high school drama class was in charge of producing the movie. If you have really low expectations than it may be okay but when I see Yuen Biao in a movie I expect it to not be horrible. I hope you like it more than I did.

Another review suggest this movie is actually a TV show or mini-series that has been spliced together for release into a 95 minute movie, and that makes a lot of sense to me after watching this. Kung-Fu Master is no piece of art, as a movie or as a genre entry. Dou Xiao's direction is incredibly poor, and the martial arts are a curious mix of actual skill, badly done (and silly) wire-fu, and cut-aways evincing incredibly bad editing. While a plot can be thin in this genre, it should at least be serviceable. This movie has no discernible plot, and the end makes zero sense.

What's good about it? Well, Kung-Fu Master has some excellent long shots of some of the fights that incorporate several combatants at once. Most of these sequences involve fights with javelins or sticks. There's also (I think?) good effort displayed by star Yuen Biao, but the wire-fu and endless cuts always make you question whether it's real or completely faked.

It almost seems as though the movie is trying to be a modern day version of one of those cheesy chop-socky movies from the 70s, but I can't quite believe the people behind Kung-Fu Master had that much vision. I got the movie dirt cheap at a close-out sale for a Blockbuster Video store. And that's about all I can recommend you expend for it. Poor.

I should have read the reviews before buying this horrendous movie. The kung-fu scenes are the worst pruduction I had ever seen. And, to make things worse (if that could be possible), there is no reasonable plot; the movie is just a quilt of badly acted fights. Maybe if you could watch the movie in Chinese you might have lines of more than three to four words, but because I don't speak Chinese I have no way to tell you; however, watching it in English might give you the pleasure to enjoy lines of at the most two words. The dialogs, in English, reminded me of some gutural dialogs in movies about prehistoric people casted in the early 70s.

You can never believe what people say in the review. You must keep an open mind.

The plot of the movie is an emperor wanted the best of the Kung-Fu master to train his troops. He presented a series of test to make sure the Kung-Fu master is the best. When he gets to talk to the emperor, he declined to train his troops because it is against his buddhist teaching and beliefs.

At the end, the emperor orders to destroy the Shaolin monastery. The remaining Shaolin monks went to release the Kung-Fu master held prisoner at the fortress.

The Kung Fu master exhibits great Kung Fu skills. I will rate the movie 3 or more stars.

The filming and fighting styles are extremely outdated. They look exactly like those of Hong kong movies made during the 1970's and 80's. I mean they're slow and look fake. There is no plot just fighting from the beginning till the end. The costumes and make-up also look like those in 70's movies.

Yuen biao's acting and fighting skills are so disappointing here.

In short, this movie is boring and repetitive. It's a huge waste of money and time. It's one of the worst kung fu movies I've ever seen.

it would've been nice to see a preview of the movie prior to deciding to buy, I know it's not possible for all purchases, it still a good function to have
