Plot

A couple unite – she is fluent in the crane style of kung fu, he in tiger style. They have a son, but the boy’s father is killed by the evil eunuch Bai Mei. Disguised as a girl, his mom trains him in crane style while he secretly learns tiger style from his father’s training manual.

My Thoughts

Another Shaw Brother Film from Dragon Dynasty. It Features Gordon Liu For a short Period of time Rocking A full Head of hair. The Bad Guy Has  a special skill to tuck his nuts up inside of him and when some one kicks him in the crotch and can grab their foot with his nuts and drag them, hahahaha. The fight scenes are classic shaw style preformed by Chen Kuan Tai  who is in like a million films.

The martial arts percentage is 42% So almost half the film is action even tho at some point it didn’t seem like it, as the plot focuses on the love story between 2 of the characters. But after that its all kick ass along with most of it being training scenes as the tiger style and crane style are combined to try to defeat the bad guy who killed their teacher. ooh The bad Guy is the white-haired and bearded Pai Mei…who is not I repeat not played by Gordojn Liu Who played him in Kill bill 2..

Now I wont degrade the film by the crappy art work dragon dynasty is putting out lately. They show images not even in the film like the back it shows Pai Mei who is rocking black armor and a dark blood-red leather skirt  wielding a katana, Huh. also doesn’t show main characters on the starring list it just shows Lo Lieh who is Pai Mei. It is like this for majority of the 8 films they are putting out this month and next month. Blah. But not throwing art work into the equation it’s all about the film and I give it a rating of

4 out of 5
