This has nothing to do with the story or legend of the Eight Immortals, the xian of Taoist mythology. If you are looking to learn something about the Eight Immortals or Taosim, this is not for you. If you want to learn something about the Eight Immortals, try The Eight Immortals of Taoism: Legends and Fables of Popular Taoism (Meridian)

Rather, this is unbelievably cheap, very low-brow entertainment (and I use that word very loosely) that just so happens to feature eight heroes with supernatural powers who are, at best, very bad caricatures of the Eight Immortals. There is no other connection to the Eight Immortals.

Unless you have memorized all of the lines to all of the bad movies ever shown on the SciFi Channel, I cannot think of a single reason to buy or watch this movie. Actually, I should apologise to the SciFi Channel because they would never show anything this bad. Mystery Science Theater 3000 would not even consider this movie. It's that bad.

Lest there be any misunderstanding, I enjoy "B" movies, but the alphabet doesn't have enough letters beyond "Z" to properly categorize this... whatever it is.

My copy will be up on eBay in the near future and it will be priced to move.

I can't really think of anything to compare this to, but the closest may be Greek mythology books where the gods would partake in real world events if they felt the need. I know next to nothing about Chinese mythology, but from what I have seen, most of it looks very interesting. Some people might be put off by all of the singing in this, but it is my favorite thing about the movie.

After introducing seven of the eight Immortals , the actual story starts while introducing the eighth. When a bloodsucking demon captures a girl that one of the gods favors, the Eight Immortals intervene. The story slows down after introducing the Immortals, but picks back up by the end.

There is not much action, but that didn't bother me. This isn't a kung fu movie, it is just a magical experience. After no fighting the entire movie, there is a huge throwdown at the end which is nicely filmed and has good choreography. The rest is magic type action, but all of it is fun to watch.

3.5/5

The film print is far from being in perfect condition, but the picture and sound quality is very good.
