About the Movie
Master martial arts moviemaker Liu Chia-liang wanted to make a movie about Chinese royalty’s relation to the common people. He accomplished it with one of the greatest kung-fu adventures ever made, incorporating at least three of the most brilliantly conceived and executed fight sequences ever caught on film. Wang Yu is the streetwise title character while the director’s adopted brother, Gordon Liu Chia-hui, plays an incognito prince who uses Ho as a dupe to try avoiding court intrigue. But any description of the plot cannot communicate the beauty and ingeniousness of Liu’s invention and vision. Combining laughs and thrills, the monumental director adds to his legend with a film that only gets more impressive with each successive viewing.
A great film with brilliant choreography and humor. A must-see!
Amazing Kung Fu!
Story of a reluctant student joining a roality Kung Fu master in line for the throne who is being hunted down by a fellow successor. The real greatness of this Shaw Brothers classic is the close quarters, casual Kung Fu. Gordon Liu is brilliant as the 11th Prince and Wong Yue holds his own as his student. A must see for any Kung Fu film fan.
A Dirty Ho
I think the Shaw Brothers did not consider the english translation. Great Saturday afternoon flick.
