AVerage movie

Quite boring in bits, but somehow it felt like a Spaghetti Western movie rather than a Kung Fu movie. In fact, felt more like a Sartana or Sabata movie with Kung Fu skills and showdowns rather than gunfights.

Plot also felt like a Spaghetti Western. Robbers double cross each other to retrieve gems and a "man with no name" whose motives remain unclear till the very end. Just imagine the kung fu fighters as hardened Spaghetti Western heroes who carry swords instead of guns and you'll feel right at home.

One good thing about this movie is that it doesn't mention Shaolin or show any training at all or show clan vengeance or school rivalry or Chings vs Manchus, etc. This is pure greed with an every man for himself feel and none of the characters have that much depth, hence the Spaghetti Western feel. The body count is also high.

If you're tired of 36th Chamber type Shaolin movies or Shaolin Temple related movies, watch this but don't expect to be immersed in the story. Watch once and forget.
