Finally, a Shaw Bros. martial arts film that hits all the right buttons: interesting characters, plot twists, colorful design and, of course, excellent fights. I went into this not expecting much—a couple of the ones with "shaolin" in the title have been weak. After an unimpressive opening scene, things start to get interesting as the film sets itself up as a sort of murder mystery. The trail leads them to the shaolin temple and it's there that the fights get really crazy as one of the heroes battles a literal wall of monks.
