Editorial Reviews

In his travels, Caine meets up with an old man who has several surprises for him. The first being the destruction of the Shaolin order, the second being that the man is the father of the Emperor's nephew whom he killed in China, and the third is that he seeks his revenge using the son Caine never knew he had sired as the instrument of his death. It will take all of Caine's skill and wisdom to find a solution to this deadly predicament.

As has been pointed out, whatever it's flaws, this movie DOES nicely "wrap up" several plot threads from the original Kung Fu Series. That being the case, and with the whole Series now out on DVD, why no release of this one except on VHS Tape?

I'm not aware who owns the rights to this film, but someone needs to make a suggestion to them, please?

The series Kung Fu was a really great show. David Carradine gave a real honesty to the character of Kwai Chang Caine. The movie was good. Brandon Lee brought an intensity to the movie also. This was a good example of the original series AND it folloewd the show... not any other martial artist's idea. It could have been a little more exciting, but all in all it was worth watching and that is why I gave it FOUR STARS!

I bought this and had it ported to a DVD. It lost a little in the transition, but that wasn't the fault of the original VHS. For a few $$ I recommend it.

The reason I can only give it 2 stars is the script, the acting and the ending.

The script is only barely recognizable compared to any of the original episodes. I just got through watching all 3 seasons and this was like watching a bad imitation. The very worst episode of the series was 5 times better than this.

After 10 years, Carradine is walking through the role, exerting almost no effort at all. In fact, at times he is so wooden it is embarrassing - his only true good moment is the ending scene with the son. The sheriff is so overplayed that it is almost surreal to watch him - I recognize the actor and have never seen him play a part so poorly - it's almost like watching a kid in a high school play. Mako and the old man that dies are about the only characters that put in good performances. Everyone else acts like bad extras. I don't know enough to lay the blame at the feet of the actors or the director, but somebody was not doing their job. The entire thing felt like one of those 'reunion' shows from the '80s that were slapped together with the lowest budget possible. [hmmm..]

I'll be the first to admit [as a fan of the show] that the fight scenes in the series weren't the best, and certainly don't hold a candle to present day performances - but I never expected them to. I've always enjoyed the show for exactly what it was and enjoyed the 'low tech' feel/choreography of the fight scenes as they felt 'natural' in the context of the way the series was put together. The action was CONSISTENT throughout.

For me this was a rare find. I already own the entire DVD collection of David Carradine's performances in his Kung Fu TV series. Wish it was available on DVD. This story helped act as a bridge and partial summation for the entire series preceding this production. Answers a few questions, and of course leaves much open to be questioned. I was very happy to see it available.

This was the perfect conclusion to the series of the same name. It carried the same actors and story line to a conclusion that could have been a new beginning to the series. Set the the old West with an unusual hero the series and the movie gives viewers a look at a culture that has been all but wiped out by the history of China.

There is no one of my generation having grown up in the 70's who does NOT know who "Caine" is. And for this movie to take place is a testimony that the character could not fade away; which later lead the 2nd generation tv series in the modern era. YOU MUST HAVE THIS movie.

I consider this a classic since it has Bruce Lee's son Brandon Lee in it, my son is 7 years old and he also liked it, this is a hard to find item, arrived on time, nice packaging, thank you.
