    I can heartily recommend the film, I stuck it onto a portable player to while away a long plane flight … and massively annoyed nearby passengers with my shouts of joy. An interesting portrayal of the “lamas” (IE Tibetans) as sinister types.

    Oh and the opening credit sequence of having actors perform moves in front of the camera is actually a common in martial arts movies of that period

    For my money, the Shaw Brothers’ colorful and giddy Five Elements Ninja has the most crazy-per-ounce of any kung fu flick I’ve seen so far:

    If you want sheer kung-fu craziness, you need to be introduced to the controlled psychedelic substance that is Fantasy Mission Force.

    The first time I watched it, in bad English dub, I thought, “Surely it couldn’t be that insane…could it? It must make more sense in Chinese, right?”

    Then I actually imported a DVD of the original-language movie and discovered that, save for leaving out any translation of a musical number at the beginning, the dub was completely accurate.

    Even Jackie Chan, who had about 15 minutes of screen time in it, said of it, “If it sounds ridiculous, that’s only because it was.”

    HELL YEAH! C-l-a-s-s-i-c. I have a serious Kung Fu jones now (not to be confused with Black Belt Jones).

    I always wanted to know how they added all the stock sound effects back in the day. It’s not like had samplers or Final Cut Pro or anything. Also, I’d like to find some info on the VO dudes- they always sound like the same ones.

    at 2minutes 10 seconds of this youtube, you see people doing the foley for a Shaw Brothers kung fu film. One man is tapping shoes on the floor, another beats boxing gloves together. Other people grunt.

    Awesome! I haven’t seen this one.

    Invincible Super Chan is another quality flick. That is, if thrown around rag dummies, flying manikins, actor shadows on painted backdrops and a kung-fu midget mean a “quality flick”.

    Ooooh! Thank you! I loved that movie when it came out and haven’t seen it since; I’m going to spend some time watching the whole thing & searching for a copy I can purchase.
