Saga of the Phoenix (1990)
Reviewed by: STSH on 2001-06-21
Summary: Muddled and terrible
One thing the other reviewers didn't mention is how awfully annoying Gloria Yip is in this film. She is every bit as irritating as those loud kids in som many awful kid-fu films.

This film is also very derivative. For instance, there are several ideas and motifs nicked from the 2nd Star Wars movie, for instance freezing Yuen Biao like a cold piece of toast. The really silly puppet seems to be a weird combo of E.T. and Gremlins. The one good thing I can say about this movie is that it seems to have provided a dress rehearsal of some of the visuals later used in the terrific HEROIC TRIO.

Missing this film won't hurt your life karma one bit !
