3.0 out of 5 starsAll the right elements are always enough
Verified purchase
So this is a good example where all the parts are there, but it just is missing something.
There are some very talented acrobats in this. There work is very good.
There is a bad guy who is too smug and doesn't really have a history of why he roaming around beating up every person that says they know kung fu. He just does it. Which doesn't make him a very engaging villain.
Classic get beat up by bad guy, go learn (another) kung fu and come back to confront the bad guy.
This has three student going off to do that with different instructors. Two of them have some detailed training sequences, not so much for the third.
Meanwhile their teacher is up to his own studying which isn't gone on into. And a trick that isn't explained how he came up with it or devised it (trying to avoid spoilers).
Needless to say, there is a lot of leaping and jumping around.
This one is low on weapons play, but there is some.
Honestly, I had to put up with it to watch the whole thing, and that's a shame. The elements were all there, but they just didn't really come together like those same elements do in other films.

4.0 out of 5 starsThree Students Search for New Masters to Take Revenge for Their Original Master Against the Man in Black
Verified purchase
This movie is in Cantonese with English subtitles if you turn it on. For a kung-fu movie, this is pretty good because the fight scenes are very well choreographed and the story is easy to understand. A man in black walks through town with a sign that insults kung-fu masters to say that none are as good as him, so they have no right to be masters. He goes around beating up masters or killing them at times believing he's the best there is in kung-fu. At one point he meets a simple street master who has three kung-fu students. He beats them all, and the master almost died. Knowing that their master is not good enough to beat this man in black, the three students decided to leave their master to find new masters separately. Their plan is to return in a year with new kung-fu in order to take revenge for their master who they respect, but knows his ability to teach them is limited. Of course they keep their words and return. One learns from a great female fighter who sells tofu, while another learns from a gambler, and the third learns from a homeless guy. Their kung-fu when merged becomes a powerful force.

5.0 out of 5 stars5 Superfighters Is The Perfect Title For This Movie
Verified purchase
I've watched this movie several times and enjoy it more with each view. Good training and fight scenes that work well with the simple storyline. You get to see several different styles of Kung Fu that are fun and exciting to watch. This was the first time I've watched this movie on Amazon Prime. It is in Chinese (I watched it with subtitles) and the film quality is good. Whenever I watch Chinese Kung Fu movies on TV (and in this case on my PC) I normally like to watch the dubbed versions only because it's easier to follow the dialog and storyline. But with this movie I really enjoy and prefer it in it's original langue to the dubbed versions I watched before.
If you are a newbie to Chinese Martial Arts films this is a good choice to start with as the storyline is simple and straight forward and the fight scenes are fun to watch. Not much to dislike here.

4.0 out of 5 starsChock Full of Agile, Convincing Hand-to-Hand
Verified purchase
Every actor in this movie is an incredible acrobat. There is very little weaponry but the choreography is extremely complex, showcasing the deadly use of hands and feet. The story is simple but grabs you from the beginning Full screen and original language with subtitles.

3.0 out of 5 starsNot English version, okay movie
Verified purchase
It was okay for me but not really a hit. I love karate, but it has to have a punch to it , this just did not have that and the story line was off, you get what it's about but just wasn't feeling it at times, so the movie doesn't hold you like a Tai Chi or even The Jade Fox.

Shaw Brothers, so you know what to expect with regards to action. A good story, but it is not dubbed, so you will have to read the subtitles. Free streaming for Prime members at the time of this review.

The corrector of bad Kung Fu - Great character.

Worth a watch.
