Throughout the month of July, I plan on reviewing (in a slightly smaller format) the films in this collection released through Mill Creek Entertainment. There are 50 films of wildly varying quality, all of which have slipped into the public domain. These budget releases are a staple of cheap-o DVD bins, but is there any fun to be had within? Well.. let’s take a look.
Pitiful and boring kung fu comedy with a brutal pan and scan hack-job hiding anything fairly interesting. The trained monkeys are unimpressive, and the kung fu is few and far between. The final battle between Carter Wong and Sing Chen has some fine moments, mostly due to an acrobatic double for Wong, but the other fights are unwatchable because of darkness or cropping. The plot is completely nonsensical (though possibly based on some sort of Chinese myth), and it seems like the film was designed mostly for children with some potty humour thrown in for good measure. A guard yelling about his “wedding tackle” being bitten gives a few laughs, but this one isn’t worth your time.
