In 1930s China, unrest rules the nation. Chen, the last Wing Chun master, arrives in Tianjin to expand his kung fu but his ambition gets him entangled in a power struggle between Tianjins martial arts Grandmaster, a dominant underworld Madam, and the towns military leaders. Can he protect his family from the dangers of the martial arts world, or will it consume everything he loves?


My Review:

The Final Master is Action filled Shaw Brothers Homage that also stars for a short time Shaw Brothers Star Chen Kuan-tai. The film follows the last master for the style Wing Chun. His goal is to keep it alive but faces obstacles along the way as he trains a student to help him defeat 8 schools so he can open his own to keep Wing Chun going.

The Story is a great follow but at times you may fall of track if your not fully watching the film as it could get a little confusing. Action wise the film was great and filled with lots of action which was mostly weapon fighting. Sadly Not a ton of hand on hand to showcase great Wing Chun. Action was good and the film is a at a decent run time just below 2 hours. So the film doesn’t feel like it drags.

Some of the down sides I would say again was I want more Wing Chun in the form of Hand to hand. A few cuts in the editing g during a fight kind of got in the way as it didn’t make the action as smooth but overall the action doesn’t have bad cuts and I’m not sure if it was a style thing or not. Some of the camera work also if your paying attention does kick in like a Classic Shaw film and same with its story.

Overall the film was a great watch and its a film that does get good reviews as my review will mostly match the other ratings here. If you like action, a good story and love to see Chen Kuan-tai do his thing with a big ass sword then this is a film for you.

With that said I give this film a 4 out of 5 stars. It has some nit-picking moments on my end with a spot in a scene with the editing and not as much hand to hand Wing Chun but the rest of the film makes this a good one to view. Pick it up.
