Critic Reviews for 36th Chamber of Shaolin (Shao Lin san shi liu fang)

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (1)

  • 36th Chamber's nearly hourlong training sequence overshadows the rest of the movie, but it's the stuff of action-cinema legend.

    As a huge Wu-Tang Clan fan for 15+ years now, it's a little embarrasing admitting its taken this long to finally see this Shaw Brothers classic. Liu Tsai is sick of seeing his fellow man slain by a usurping clan, he goes to Shaolin to train to become a monk. There he must pass through 35 chambers. At the end of his training however, he offers a 36th chamber, to go out and teach shaolin martial arts to the world. After 5 long years of traininghe's ready to kick some serious bad guy ass. The fight sequences are very good in this movie, and I found the training scenes to be very motivational. That being said I think that the movie lags a bit in the middle when Liu is training. Aside from that minor complaint I thoroughly enjoyed this martial arts classic. A must see!

    there is a reason that this is considered by many to be the greatest kung fu movie of all time. the training sequences are among the best and most comprehensive ever filmed, the story isnt quite unique but it is well crafted, and the fight sequences are solid. an amazing fictional tale that attempts to offer a possible history of the bringing of shaolin kung fu to the masses.

    A solid notch above almost all other Shaw films I've seen, this one was more exciting and dramatically developed than the usual. And it looked great in HD.
