I hate the pussy-footing of chinese martial arts like kung fu and this. Just feels like a waste of energy to go from pose to pose in order to show off your might. But it's aesthetic. Nonetheless, 5 stars because they still kick ass.
I have this on DVD and it plays like a movie. I'm not sure of how the TV show fits in, whether it was cut from it, or a stand alone movie based on it.
This and the seven level pagoda scene are great.
The bit starting at 2:47 where they just trade joint lock reversals over and over is utterly sick.
Also it was originally a TV series and Tai Tseng edited it down into like a three hour movie for an American release.

Uh this is cool and all, and it's Yuan Wo Ping, so you know, five stars. But it's hardly better than the flaming posts showdown from Iron Monkey. It was hardly as boring as something from Kill Bill, either, though.
