(1978) 10 Brothers of Shaolin
MARTIAL ARTS ACTION/ PERIOD PIECE
10 so-called brothers by way of principal since they trained and lived together for a long time in the same temple are ordered by the head Chinese monk to protect a heirchy ruler whose been hiding in the temple until his cover was blown in which the unfaithful commander putting a bounty on his head. The dubbing is atrocious which didn't make since but in order to appeal to English speaking viewers, the language was changed from "Buddha be praised" to "God be praised". The martial art sequences is some of the worst I've ever seen since they barely even touch one another. And they're too many twists that don't make a lot of sense such as the monk who betrayed the temple for the whereabouts of the hierchy ruler but is necessary since it's supposed to be a movie and may have ran out of ideas.
