The 36 Deadly Styles (1979)
Reviewed by: STSH on 2005-11-15
Summary: Not quite deadly dull
The story wanders around with a couple of uncles who get killed, before finally settling down to be the story of Wa Chi (Nick Cheung, billed as Wai Lung). This makes the first quarter hard to follow, but things improve from there on.

There's heaps of great fu talent, but the fights vary from very good down to dull. Hwang Jang Lee was given top star credit but his character is unfortunately stunt doubled for most of his on-screen time. How handy it is to put an actor then a stuntman in a long grey wig ;)

I think the fu talent could have been used to better effect, but the result is okay viewing. Fine if you're a bit bored.
