(MU) Lo mejor que he visto de Chang Cheh, la coreografía se eleva a arte conceptual y temática por cada elemento; es el musical de la MGM de las artes marciales, el fuego rojo profundo, la tierra con guerreros que hincan desde abajo y hasta el agua....

"I ventured out to some of the second hand shops that are outside of my area, which I like to do every once in a while and thankfully the trip did not disappoint (pickups #29-33 below). For some reason it's been a good time for kung fu/wu xia films as I found this classic Shaw Bros flick from 1982. Never seen it so eager to check it out."

"21.11. Shaw Brothersin martial arts -elokuva onnistuu täyttämään genrelleen valitettavan yleiset tylsät juoniosiot herkullisella ninjatyhmällä, jolloin Cheh Changin elokuva pitää mielenkiinnon yllä. Myös taistelukohtaukset ovat hyvä sekoitus näyttävää koreografiaa, puskista tulevaa gorea ja hihittelyä aiheuttavia ninjavirityksiä. Näiden yhdistelmä nousee helposti muuten aivan sietämättömän tylsiä historiapullisteluja tehneen ohjaajansa parhaaksi tekeleeksi."

Movies the giraffe watched in 2016: July (38 movies items)

"First viewing - July 15th-16th I've been reading some praise here & there lately for this film, and while it's not at all a companion to The Big Short I watched it after that film anyway. And now I understand why it's respected...it's solidly entertaining with plenty of memorable moments. I'm not sure it crossed my personal line of greatness, but it's fun enough I'd watch it again at some point. Currently streaming on Netflix"
