The Sister of the San-Tung Boxer (1973)
Reviewed by: Gaijin84 on 2018-12-06
Summary: Weak follow up to the classic...
The Sister of the San-Tung (Shantung) Boxer basically starts with a brief re-enactment of the final scene from Chang Cheh’s classic “Boxer from Shantung” but with Lam Chung assuming the role of Ma Su Chen. After he is killed, his sister (Wang Ping) arrives in town to take revenge for his death. She is joined by Tan (Charlie Chin), who is a rival boss looking to take over the territory of Chen’s murderers, now calling themselves the Axe Gang. Together they hunt down all the sub-bosses and then go after the boss, but not before they take on two hired killers, one an American Indian and the other a Japanese samurai.

Obviously made to capitalize on the success of the far superior Chen Kuan-tai led ground breaker, “Sister” is a lackluster basher that doesn’t really satisfy any parameters. The fights are slow, the characters are wooden and the plot is weak. Wang Ping is decent as the sister Ma Su Cheng, but in the end it’s all an excuse to simply film seemingly never-ending fights. Best avoided as it does nothing to carry on the story-line.
