Martial Arts of Shaolin (1986)
Reviewed by: pjshimmer on 2003-02-23
Let's see. Shaolin Temple was uninspiring (to me anyway), Kids from Shaolin was pretty good, and Martial Arts of Shaolin is, as the trend would have it, even better--definitely action wise. Yue Sing Wai is the best swordsman I've ever seen, and he puts on a great show with his unique double hand sword style. At the end, SURPRISE SURPRISE, Jet Li (along with Yue Hoi) does excellent mantis boxing! The overall martial arts is very good (esp the finale and the "writing contest"), with a few exceptions when they get too long.
