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!
