The Prodigal Son (1981)
Reviewed by: MrBooth on 2002-11-15
Summary: Great movie
The Prodigal Son is definitely a movie that's well above average in the kung fu genre, though I don't understand how anybody could claim it to be the best kung fu movie ever (which people do). It's good, but it's not better than WARRIORS TWO, THE VICTIM, MAGNIFICENT BUTCHER or ENCOUNTERS OF THE SPOOKY KIND - all of which were made before it.

Still, it seems miserly to hold this against the movie - the fact that it still ranks up along with those all time classics shows that it's definitely a must-see movie for martial arts fans!
Reviewer Score: 8
