    A lesser known so even more underappreciated film. Great fight scenes and just enough comedy. Yuen Biao does a great as the timid and bullied Mousey!

    A landmark collaboration between Yuen Woo-ping, Yuen Biao and the legendary Kwan Tak-hing (made 70+ movies as Wong Fei-hung starting in the 40's). "Rollicking kung fu with lots of humor" Hilarious and amazing ending. A classic.

    Dubbed martial arts flick about White Tiger, billed on the box as the most frightening bandit in movie history. While not physically imposing at probably no more than 150 pounds, his face paint is reminiscent of scary metal singer King Diamond.

    Dreadnaught may not satisfy hardcore kung fu fans with there not being as many fight scenes as you'd expect but the film makes up for it with loads of uniquely glorious action scenes such as the lion dance scene and the "laundry kung fu" scenes. There are still lots of fantastic fight scenes featuring Yuen Woo Ping's direction in top form. The typical lame humor and dated qualities are somewhat tolerable with it not being as horrific as some other films of the era and with there even being one or two fairly humorous moments. Overall, Dreadnaught is a hugely enjoyable film with great unique action scenes .

    Old school Kung Fu flick that is jam packed with over the top fight sequences and stunts that will blow your mind. A deranged criminal is hiding out in the city and causes all sorts of choas til a final showdown takes places. Classic Kung Fu at it's finest.

    One of my all time favorite Kung Fu flicks. Fights scenes must be seen to believe.

    Woo-ping Yuen brings some of his best choreography to the table in this fun martial arts comedy. Yuen Biao plays Mousy, a clumsy and cowardly laundry boy who has trouble with confrontation. Everyone but him is good at martial arts, but he must find the courage within when a rival school to his master harbours a psychotic killer. The movie has a reputation for being well paced, even though the fights are not until the end, the movie has some great scenes. The lion dance, the Eagle Claw laundry training, it always entertains. Especially creepy is the theatre fight scene, in which Mousy's buddy Ah Foon must fight a creepy two headed demon mask fighter. Boasting a highly inventive fight scene at the end where Mousy fights the killer with the only martial arts attack his sister taught him, Dreadnaught is a fine martial arts film.

    Kung fu action with meek laundry man battling outlaw White Tiger, looking like member of Demolition tag team decked out in facepaint despite trying to avoid police attention. Unfortunate comic bits hold this down but the lion dance is impressive.
