Shaolin Temple Strikes Back

This is my least favorite flick by one of my favorite directors. This flick is another one of those flicks dealing with those nasty Manchus who want to ruin Shaolin at any costs. The cost in this flick is a Ming Princess who has taken refuge in the Temple. The Manchus have hired a one-time bandit as General named Lung Yi (by Chan Shan) to retrieve the young Ming Princess so they can use her as negotiation tool in dealing with the Mings. There is some decent gung fu but the story didn't thrill me and at times drags.
