    yeah, Shaolin Temple is an SB classic....all of Chang Cheh's shaolin films in the mid 70s are classics. if u liked that, u should check out 5 Shaolin Masters if u havent already.

    5 Fingers of Death is the shit. just remember it was made in 1971 and not 1980, so the choreography is 'slower' and less complex...but i love this movie. it was actually the 1st kung fu movie to get released in the US...BEFORE bruce lee.

    btw, when researching kung fu flix, the last place u should check is IMDB. theres tons of mistakes in there. those name u listed could be aka's, im not sure, but both films were definetely directed by Chang Che. 5 shaolin masters is i think a sequel to shaolin temple. also check out Men from the Monestary and Shaolin Martial Arts. all of those films are CC's shaolin line of films in teh mid 70s. not sure the order...but i know that 5 shaolin masters begins where shaolin temple left off.

    Prodigal Son - 5/5
    definetly a classic, the humour never gets in the way of the story or the fights
    and the main characters were very charismatic, Yuen Biao really made the most of his role.
    i was surpsised that the master was an ....ahem 'lady impersonator', but then he also learnt from sammo towards the end.
    also Wei Pai (Snake Venom) makes an appearance as a womanizing opera star.
    this film really impressed me
    im lookin to get some more Sammo Hung/Ching Ying Lam/Yuen Biao flicks
    any recomendations?

    Prodigal Sun is ILL, definitely nice pickup. I'd recommend the Sammo directed Warriors Two and also Dreadnaught starrting Yuen Biao. Both nice films.

    Duel To The Death - 4.5/5
    this fu flick is of the swordplay variety about a battle between the chinese and japanese held every 10 years.
    one guy is from shaolin temple, and is portrayed as the good guy
    while the japanese samurai battles to the death
    the battle takes place at the holy swordhouse, but the master wants fame and glory, so he and the japanese abduct chinas top fighters
    his daughter dies tragically after being made to fight
    anywayz, the title is appropriate
    the effects are surprisingly good, considering it was made in 1982
    actually, i think it could hold up quite well alongside the more modern films that have a similar feel (House Of Flying Daggers, Hero etc)
    enjoyable to watch, but not amazing

    "Sammo Hung/Ching Ying Lam/Yuen Biao "

    u'll notice that none of the 3 actually starred in very many films in the late 70s/ early 80s. sammo usually played bit parts, but spent most of the time behind the camera. yuen biao and lam ching ying are on his stunt team helping to choreograph. as far as bigger roles:

    sammo:
    iron fisted monk
    warriors two
    prodigal son
    knockabout
    magnificent butcher
    pedicab driver
    dragons forever
    wheels on meals
    the victim (must have)

    lam ching ying:
    magnificent butcher (gets just one fight)
    prodigal son
    mr vampire

    yuen biao:
    dreadnaught
    knockabout
    prodigal son
    dragons forever
    wheels on meals
    righting wrongs
    magnificent butcher


    thanx for the duel to the death review

    4 Assassins - 4.2/5
    good film, nice training scenes, and the final fight was spectacular
    great cast too
    good plot twistin the history books, with marco eventually realizing the error of his ways
    thought it was great

    Return to the 36 Chambers - 4.4/5
    i seen it before but its still a good one
    dont think he would have learnt THAT much kung fu from building scaffolding though
    liu chia hui is always a good actor and the fight at the end is quality
    Rooftop style!

    return to the 36th was great, i just wish there were a few more fights in the beginning and middle....none of the real action starts until the end. but u can never go wrong with gordon liu vs my man johnny wang lung wei
