Audience Reviews for Shao Lin da peng da shi (Master Killer II)(Return to the 36th Chamber)
Let's see what else I can do. A small town is filled with dye workers that are overtaken by the Manchu who come in with their own dye workers and quickly put the town folk out of business. A man pretending to be a Shaolin monk arrives in town and the town folk think they've been saved, but they quickly find out he's a fraud. He agrees to go to the Shaolin temple, truly learn martial arts, and comes back to save them. He is put to various tasks, but nothing he resembles as martial arts. Will the fraud be able to save the people from the Manchu? "My life is difficult." Liu Chia-Liang, director of The 36th Chamber of Shaolin, Dirty Ho, Shaolin Mantis, The 8 Diagram Pole Fighter, The Legend of Drunken Master, and Drunken Master Killer, delivers Return of the 36th Chamber. The storyline for this picture isn't a follow up to the previous picture, but a unique plot that isn't as dynamic and entertaining. The action remains excellent and Gordon Liu is awesome in the lead role. "Most of us steal food now." I watched this a long time ago and was surprised I never wrote a review for it. This was recently added to Netflix so I decided to watch it again. I enjoyed this movie and always have, but this is a step down from the original and only a classic due to Liu's greatness. This is a must see for martial arts genre fans. "I'm not a sack of grain." Grade: B-
It's plot and drama are not as good as the first one (of course it is a comedy), and the manner in which our hero learns Shaolin Kung Fu (by teaching himself while scaffolding) is a little too improbable. However, the final twenty minutes of this movie feature fight choreography so fresh, original and inventive, that I highly recommend this to anyone. Lau Kar Leung is a master of the Kung Fu film.
A sort of spirital sequel to "36th Chamber", and i'll have to say that with better rythim and more fluid. The approach is more on the light/comic side, but the fights kick equal ass.
