Audience Reviews for Hu bao long she ying (7 Grandmasters)

the final 30 minutes propel this film from good to excellent, as the story comes together and the kung fu ramps up a notch. in some ways this is a film that exists solely to put the fighting on display, but the story is serviceable and the choreography was phenomenal for the time. one of the great kung fu classics.

[color=white][img][/img][/color] [color=white][/color] [color=white][/color] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white]Sang Kuan Chun is an aging magistrate who is known as a martial arts expert. Chun has three current students and a daughter. Before he retires, Chun decides to travel the countryside and challenge the 7 other martial experts at the leading martial arts schools. While traveling the countryside, an orphaned boy asks Chun to take him on as a student. Chun has enough to worry about without taking on a new student; however, the orphan will stay persistent in his efforts to be amongst Chun’s final students.

The storyline for this picture is wonderfully depicted and well presented. The martial arts choreography was stupendous and the settings were well selected. The cast was brilliant and included Jack Long, Li Yi Min, and Mark Long.[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white]“This technique is called falling down.”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white]I am a huge fan of Joseph Kuo’s pictures. I have yet to see 18 Bronzemen 2, but I have enjoyed all of his other films listed above. This picture, 7 Grandmasters, is my favorite film of his to date. Jack Long also has an impressive list of movies on his resume. I strongly recommend this film to fans of the martial arts genre. It may not have an ‘A’ list martial arts star (Bruce Lee, Jet Li, Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung, Gordon Li, Lo Leih, or Donnie Yen) in the cast, but this is still an outstanding martial arts picture.[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white]“How’s it taste?”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white]“Like the ass.”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white]Grade: A-[/color][/size][/font]

The martial arts in this movie is the best I've seen. Some crazy fight scenes with different fighting styles like monkey, mantis, tiger and more. I waz very impressed. Great fights and good laughs. This is goin down as one of my favorite ol' skool martial arts movie of all time. This movie is probably not for everyone, this movie is for the Kung-Fu fanantics or just likes ol' skool Kung-Fu.[/font]
