Audience Reviews for The Invincible Armour (Ying zhao tie bu shan)


INVINCIBLE ARMOUR is a cream-of-the-crop martial arts film which features the stars in the peak of their careers.

Hwang Jang Lee kicking ass of course, Riz Ortolani's Day of Anger theme playing, and Yuen Biao and Cory Yuen doing cameos. I think that's more than enough to get this one.

The storyline for this film is entertaining, though not particularly original or unpredictable. The acting is solid, and the action is stupendous. The choreography by Yuen Biao is magnificent. Yuen Biao and Phillip Ko gave this film credibility with their stupendous fight scenes.[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]“I have never met garbage like you in all my life.”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]The opening invincible armor and eagle claw demonstration, the bedroom attack, the courtyard “practice” sequence, the restaurant fight, the fight between the bounty hunter and the master for the right to bring in General Chow, the 10 blows attempt to bring down the little brother, the training scenes with the boy, the wine paying fight, General Chow versus the bounty hunter, the battle between the two white haired masters, and the bounty hunter and General Chow versus the boss were amongst the better portions of the film.[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]“There’s no smoke without fire.”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]Invincible Armor is a splendid martial arts picture. The action scenes in this film are triumphant. The storyline is solid, but far from invigorating. Nevertheless, Invincible Armor is a must own for anyone’s martial arts collection. The choreography and cast are first rate, and Ng See-Yuen presents the film perfectly.[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]“Time can change all conditions.”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000][/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]Grade: A-[/color][/size][/font]
