The 36th Chamber of Shaolin (1978)

Directed By – Chia-Liang Liu

Screenplay By – Kuang Ni

Cinematography By – Yeh-tai Huang & Arthur Wong

115 min.

The 36th Chamber of Shaolin starts off slow and I was skeptical for a while, but once the story gets into full gear it’s just an awesome movie that makes me happy I celebrate Kung Fu February. 36th Chamber isn’t as flashy as a Jackie Chan movie or full of pure force like Bruce Lee but it has a story that is as compelling to watch as the best of them. There’s nothing like a boy learning the ways of Shaolin Kung Fu and that’s all this movie is for an hour of stream-lined entertainment.

This movie turned out to be a personal favorite.

I couldn’t have asked for a better movie to start Kung Fu February off with. The Legend of Drunken Master has a tremendous amount of humor along with draw dropping fight sequences. My only complaint is that there isn’t enough drunken boxing but the lack of drunken boxing serves the story better than if there was a ton of it so I guess there’s nothing for me to really do with that complaint.

This movie is awesome, period.

Happy Kung Fu February everyone! This is an exciting time for us all!
