One of the most impressive movies I've seen in my childhood

This movie with actors from Taiwan, Hongkong and China was one of my favourite movies when I was a little kid. I always liked Asian culture and watched a lot of kung fu flicks with my father. While other kids at elementary school watched Hollywood cinema or cartoons, I watched kung fu movies like this one. I remember that I watched this movie at least three times a year with a girlfriend of mine when I was young and we both enjoyed watching this. Lately, I rediscovered this movie and fell in love with it again.

The story is quite simple. Our main hero helps to hang a villain for his kingdom and the father of the deceased swears revenge and kills the entire family of our main hero. Only his nephew survives in a well after a bloody massacre. The main hero swears revenge and wants to know who is responsible for the bloodbath. He quits his job and leaves his kingdom to seek for justice. But his counterpart sets a prime on his head and the main hero has to face many fighters that hope to kill him and get rich and famous. On his way, he must struggle with many enemies and traps as well as with his young and stubborn nephew that follows him everywhere until he meets with his final adversary.

The movie has many strong points. The fighting scenes and the choreographic work are outstanding and many gifted actors are featured on this film. Sometimes, a few fighting scenes are a little bit exaggerated and artificially flavoured but this is nothing unusual to the genre.

The acting is also very well done and features many very cool characters as the ice cold main hero and his courageous young nephew. On the other side, you have an intriguing mysterious man in black and a young and naive fighter and his beautiful girlfriend that try to kill the main hero. The movie is always entertaining and contains not a single minute of boredom.

In comparison to some other critics, I really liked the score of this film. It features traditional Chinese folk music, electronic pop music and some parts of scores coming from different famous series and movies (for example: Once upon a time in the West). The music always fits in a very harmonic way to the different scenes and characters.

The only negative points I might cite in this movie are some exaggerated fight scenes where people are flying across a sea or through trees and some scenes where people in black fight in a dark alley on a moonless night and where you can only guess what really happens. Sometimes, there are also some characters that appear and fight with the main hero for no apparent reason, for example before the final battle scene. But all these points do no harm to this highly addictive flick that any fan of Chinese culture and tradition and kung fu must see. The movie is hard to find but definitely worth your money and attention if you can get your hands on it.

aka: "The Master and The Kid" - Taiwanese "Lone Wolf & Cub" clone

A cheap but stylish attempt to bring some of the world of the Japanese Lone Wolf & Cub series into the kung fu genre.

After a confusingly edited opening sequence our hero, a government officer, who has just killed a criminal discovers his brother's family and his mother killed in revenge by the criminal's father, an evil warlord. The hero finds a lone survivor, his nephew. He tries to leave the child with foster parents but the kid keeps escaping and following his uncle. The officer relents and let's the child accompany him on his quest to bring the warlord to justice. The warlord hires legions of assassins to kill the officer and the boy. But this officer is an unstoppable force of kung fu fury.

The similarities to the Lone Wolf series are abundant. The officer wears a similar outfit to the Lone Wolf and instead of a baby cart the officer pulls the child in a wagon. The assassins are very quirky especially one creepy guy who dresses in black and can cut down trees with a hidden blade. There's a nod to the Zatoichi series when the officer gets a special weapon to deal with the creepy guy. The martial arts are good to excellent but the wire work is very primitive. A few of the effects are ridiculous especially the scene with the attack eagle. The film has a melodramatic subplot concerning a would-be assassin and his bride to be which works. The music track is probably all stolen.

Very well filmed and quite entertaining. There's enough plot and character work to make it stand out from the standard kung fu flick. The story is a little lumpy and the final fights are not up to the standard set earlier in the film but the story is still moving. There a fleeting bit of female nudity at the very beginning and none after.

While thankfully in widescreen, the print presently available seems to have been cropped anyway. Probably to remove the Cantonese subtitles which were frequently put in every print of low budget Taiwanese and HK Mandarin films. I look forward to a subtitled version of this film.

This movie goes to eleven!!!

I finally had the pleasure to watch this masterpiece last night. It is the movie I always wanted to make, to see, to watch.

It is one of these many Chinese movies Quentin Tarantino must have watched and always strived to recreate their amazingness! But he only came close; never was able to 100 % capture the magic.

This movie has it all: Amazing Kung Fu - or to be more precise - Wuxia action, great dubbing with extremely serious lines like: "You're the only one, 'til now, who could hurt me." The cinematography is great, real landscapes, professional "wire-fu" stunts, perfect sound- editing, magic hand grenades, drama... Simply put: The perfect movie.

But what makes it go to eleven on a rating system from one to ten is the unique combination of Chinese action and actors with American dubbing and western soundtracks.

There's music from Ennio Morricone and Jean Michelle Jarre in this one! Many years, before Tarantino came along and did the same thing (combining eastern and western)

It's so bad, it's good. And it's so good in it's bad-good way that it's perfect.

When movies are about entertainment, this one wins the universe!

There's not enough motion picture awards in all of existence to praise Xia gu rou qing chi xi zin enough.

Wow, just wow.

This movie is like one of these things you were looking for since the day you were born - but did not know; so instead you tried to find movie-happiness in the IMDb Top 250 or wherever.

I at least did. Until last night... when I finally found it.

THAT is how good this movie is.
