Movie Info

A martial arts competition in a long-ago period in China pits Chinese masters against Japanese ninja (in one scene, they fly down attached to giant kites). One of the ninjas is good at deception and helps his teammates to come out on top through treachery. The catch is that the one who will be the ultimate winner fights a duel to the death, using all the powers at his disposal. Even a female martial arts expert gets to take part in this Olympian contest.

  • I went into the film convinced it was going to be just another bloody, mindless muddle. I came away not only impressed, but more respectful of the genre.

    The best minds in Chinese action cinema of the late 70s and early 80s created this very fun kung fu movie that has plenty of cheesy effects but remains solidly entertaining.

    Chinese Shaolin monk and Japanese samurai warriror battle it out in this confusing (at first) and pretty silly in places story set in the MIng dynasty. The pace is all over the place, like a car on a cold morning, but luckily, every time it threatens to stall, in come a bunch of exploding ninjas to the rescue. <img src="http://www.dvdtimes.co.uk/protectedimage.php?image=DaveFoster/dttd05.jpg">

    A Shaolin vs Samurai, to the death! Ninjas galore and a fun story about honour (what else?) with some great imagery. Plus a suprising amount of wacky violence. This is a goodun.
