The Young Hero of Shaolin (1984)
Reviewed by: STSH on 2001-10-19
Summary: Action spectacular
There must be something about the story of great martial arts heroes which inspire movies which are terrific in the action dept but rather silly in story and acting. This movie is a good example, although it takes a somewhat different cut on his life. At least this one doesn't suffer the crushing solemness which burdened many other Mainland productions. Lead actor Shut Bo Wa smiles a lot (more of an inane grin, actually).

Mainly what matters is the martial arts, and it's first class and plentiful, well up to the standard one would expect from such a cast of unknowns on the mainland. Recommended.
