Audience Reviews for Ninja Checkmate (Shuang ma lian huan)

This movie is the reason i started watching kung fu films. Probably my most favorite out of the Wu Tang Films... The story is good with classic Old School music and sound effects. the camera techs are also top notch and classic along with the revenge tales which make these types of movies so cool to pop in your VCR.

[font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white]Joseph Kuo, director of 8 Masters, 18 Bronzemen II, Born Invincible, 7 Grandmasters, and 36 Deadly Styles, delivers Ninja Checkmate. The storyline for this movie is wonderful. Long does a magnificent job of delivering the main character; and Mark Long (36 Deadly Styles, 7 Grandmasters, & Born Invincible) made a brilliant villain. Kuo delivered a perfect film for this genre.[/color][/size][/font]

[font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white]The Mystery of Chess Boxing (aka Ninja Checkmate) is a surprisingly intricate and fascinating martial arts gem. The Ghost Face Killer is amongst the most notorious martial arts villains of all time. Kuo does a wonderful job of depicting and delivering each character in this movie. This is my favorite Kuo directed picture and I strongly recommend this movie to fans of the martial arts genre.[/color][/size][/font]

Mark And Jack Long were two kick ass martial artist. I wonder what there doing these days. Anyway Ninja Checkmate is a very entertaining movie. And a old school Kung fu junky gem.
