The Chinese Boxer (1970)

Summary: What a boring movie
Today it would be hard to appreciate the first kung fu movie ever made. I suppose folks who saw this film when it first came out can enjoy it due to nostalgia, but someone who sees it for the first time in the year 2003 would have major problems enjoying the action scenes, and that's exactly why I don't like old movies. Overall not too bad, but the formula has been passed on to countless kung fu movies thereafter. So if you've seen later kung fu movies, there's nothing new in the Chinese Boxer. Lo Lieh's make-up is rather refreshing.
