Product Description

Amazon.ca

A pure old-school martial arts movie, beloved by aficionados, that also appeals to nonfans simply as a rousing action film. The often-imitated fact-based plot (see The Karate Kid) centers upon the rigorous training process undergone in the mid-19th century by the anti-Manchu Chinese patriot San Te (Gordon Liu). It's depicted as a grueling voyage into the unknown. Cast out of his home village when he stands up to the cruel warlord (Lo Lieh) who slaughtered his parents, the refugee seeks out the martial monks of the Shaolin Temple, who steer him through a torturous series of "chambers"--horrendous ordeals designed to build strength and agility--before he's even allowed to study boxing or swordfighting. Finally he defeats a rival by inventing a brand-new weapon, the three-section chain-linked staff. But innovation can be carried only so far; when San Te suggests opening a "36th chamber" in the temple that would teach Shaolin techniques to the populace at large (so that they can fight the nasty Manchus) he is drummed out of the corps. Naturally he returns to his home village, slaughters the baddies, and prepares to open China's first public Shaolin-style kung fu school. Many of the pupils San Te recruits in the final reel became legendary martial artists in their own right, the "Fathers of the Church" of the Chinese kung fu tradition. This is strong action entertainment with real historical resonance. --David Chute

As usual, because this is an English/French version some compromises have been made. In this case on the audio track

As an English speaker, I can handle the English track being in mono, while the French version is in 2.0 'surround'.. but why is the Cantonese version also in mono at the expense of a larger French soundtrack? Surely the Cantonese version should be in 2.0 (or even better presented in 2.0 'surround' and mono), and the French and English versions should both be in mono

To make matters worse the Mandarin soundtrack, which I believe to be the original, has gone completely which is ridiculous

It annoys me that the French soundtrack has been given preferential treatment when this is a Hong Kong movie. Maybe next time let's all compromise on video quality so there can be a special high quality French version of a HK martial arts movie?!

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible sound ruins movie! Sept. 1 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The movie's awesome but the horrible sound quality makes it hard to sit through. You can't hear any of the dialogue unless you turn up the volume real high, but then all the sound effects become deafening. Buy it because it's a classic, but know you will be disappointed.

Fantastic quality remake of this martial arts classic. Commentary by the Rza and interview with Gordon Liu make this a must have for the martial art movie aficionado.

You Can't go wrong with this one. It is an epic revenge tail starring gordon liu where he got to go through an harcore training (the 35 chambers) in order to learn some kung fu. A lot of special features: (interview with the RZA + commentary on the movie)

This simplistic story filled with incompetent kung fu left me bored and frustrated. I heard the film was good, but found it a drag.
