Two children whose parents were killed in an attempt to possess the martial world’s most powerful weapon, the Holy Flame, are raised by competing masters, trained in kung fu in preparation for a fateful duel.
Like trying to watch a movie serial and read a comic book at the same time while also simultaneously chugging Jolt Cola and watching a fireworks display through diffraction glasses. Overwhelming, exhausting, and digressive, but also hilarious, imaginative, and irresistibly fun. Shaw Brothers productions always make the most with tiny budgets, and here silent film tricks, B-movie wire suspension, and rotating platters are used to such great effect that you’ll forget about the existence of computers. The part of your brain that keeps track of bank accounts and grocery lists will kindly step out of the way to let child-like joy take over. Step through that door, and you’ll never wanna go back.
