A Chinese kung-fu master is put in the precarious position of having to salvage his honor after inadvertently insulting the family of his new Japanese bride. His loyalty on the line, the dishonored martial artist attempts to regain his in-laws' trust by dueling with seven Japanese ninjas.

Audience Reviews for Shaolin Challenges Ninja

Wow! Pretty awesome movie starring Gordon Liu. Nothing better than good ol' martial arts action in this Chinese vs Japanese styles that are challenged when it triggers a rivalry against each other. A little bit of comedy as well in this cool Dynasty Dragon series of martial arts movies. :) I loved it * This movie starts Gordon Liu and Yoko Mizuno. They need to add that to the cast since they were the stars of the movie! ;)

Another awesome kung fu flick from the Shaw Brothers starring Gordon Liu. This one involves Chinese Martial Arts going head to head against Japanese Ninjitsu. Fun stuff for sure with a lot of comedy thrown in for good measure. A chinese man is arranged a marriage to a Japanese woman. They begin arguing almost immiedietly as to who's Kung Fu is better. The Chinese or the Japanese. The husband doesn't mind demonstrating the superiority of Chinese Kung Fu on his wife on a regular basis causing his neighbors to accuse him of beating his wife. When she finally gets sick of his bullshit she returns to Japan, but this doesn't slow her husband down any. He begins sending notes to Japan boasting of his superior martial arts skill, and mocking the inferiority of Japans. When her clan gets a hold of this they take it as a personal insult and challenge. They go to China and challenge him to a competition. He is to beat them one by one in a competition of epic proportions. Really not a dull moment from begining to end. The choreography is awesome, fight scenes plentiful, story good, pacing nice, humour refreshing and so on. Essential viewing.

Another proof of how Hong Kong cinema could mix genres like few, and bring pure entertainment in a way big idiotic hollywood studios could never think. Lau Kar Leung directs sharp and fast fight sequences that never bore, and Gordon Liu shows a great display of skill in this one. Must see.
