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.
To say that this is a good film would be a stretch. But it's absolutely golden if you love camp ninjas! American Ninja looks sane by comparison. Good fun. :)
You can't go wrong with a film whose script calls for a hulking 12 foot Voltron-like ninja that eventually breaks into several ninjas (one of which is a completely nude female) just prior to doing battle with an elderly Shaolin monk. Tell us there is no merit in that even when "Duel to the Death" -- a ham fisted homage to two culture's respective martial arts cinema output and action choreographer Ching Siu-tung's directorial debut -- fails on so many other levels.
Strange but very entertaining wuxia classic. Features a Japanese/Chinese battle plot, ninjas on kites, a nice helping of blood, and some amazing swordplay. Highly recommended.
Without argument this is THE greatest martial arts movie ever made. If you want to argue it, then clearly you haven't even seen this movie, because if you had, you wouldn't be arguing!
A crazy mix of ninjas and wuxia in this very unique and outlandish movie. The action scenes are especially impressive, with the ninja battles. The ending duel was also tops too, with the bats flying away and waves crashing against the shoreline. A lot of style to boot, even though the pace was off at times.
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.
One of the best movie to see ninjas in action.
A cool wire fu flick with two kick ass main characters. The only problem I had with it was the obvious bias towards China against Japan. Still, very enjoyable film with a throw away plot and entertaining fights.
