Audience Reviews for Lord of the Wu Tang (Kung Fu Master) (Yi tian tu long ji: Zhi mo jiao jiao zhu) (The Evil Cult)

Jet Li plays an orphan who is caught in the midst of a kung fu gang war. He eventually masters enough martial arts to bring the various sects into line, but a corrupt government official begins meddling. The Evil Cult is an over-the-top wushu flick that features wacky fights, sped-up camera tricks, and lots of wire stunts coordinated by Sammo Hung. This zany fantasy film may not be to everyone's taste, but it's worth hunting down if one enjoys madcap melee sequences.

There should be a sequel to this one & more movies like this out there but not too much over doing the wire work or computerized stuff.

An adaption of Jin Yong's one of his 14 classic novels about ancient swordsmen. Actually a lot of additions and deletions had been made. And by adapting Jin Yong's masterpieces into a 2-3 hours length is always a mission impossible (therefore, which are more suitable by making 'em into TV series than movies). [The Evil Cult] roughly tells the story of one of the most important scene in the novel but far from satisfactory after all. By casting Jet Li, it is most probably due to market consideration & for his martial arts skills.
