Audience Reviews for Thunderbolt Fist


Evil Japanese ronin come to a Chinese village to monopolize the gin sing trade and start pushing everybody around. A group of fighters escape to the mountains to sharpen their skills and plan their revenge. A typical, straightforward martial arts film and nothing more. The story is very commonplace. The fights weren't very impressive. However, the final fight, which is the only excellent fight scene in the movie, while the others were decent at best. You'll see the protagonist chop the karate master's arm off. Plus the protagonist does a flying kick through the karate master's belly and blood was spurting all over the place which was awesome.
