Movie Info

Liu Chia-Liang spins this Shaw Brothers period kung-fu flick about a pair of scalawags -- Chi Ta-po (Alexander Fu-Sheng) and Chau Chu-chi (Chan Chang-peng) -- who decide to track down some ill-gotten booty from a long-dead pirate named Chang Po-chu. They first manage to find a letter written by Chang and owned by a sly old antique collector who also happens to be a kung-fu whiz himself. From the letter, they learn of an evil priest named Wu Sheng (Gordon Lau) and a wicked lord named Mo Chung (Johnny Wang) who systematically killed anyone claiming a piece of the treasure. Wild high-flying kung-fu fights ensue. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Master of Disaster (The Treasure Hunters) (Lung fu siu yeh)

Any movie with Gordon Liu, Wang Lung Wei and Fu Sheng is a must watch for the fight scenes alone (and that girl with the double blades was awesome, but I don't know who she is - must investigate), but the comedy is just atrocious, Sesame Street level shit. I take it that the Shaws wanted to compete with the slapstick films Yuen Wo Ping and his clan was making with and without Jackie Chan for Golden Harvest at this period.

Shaw Brothers production that combines really good slapstick and really good action. It beats Kung Fu Hustle that;s for sure.
