Summary: Not so great.......

i didn't have a clue what type of movie this would be and it ended up a little confusing, gods and humans living together and Na cha seeing injustice can not stand by and let evil continue.

I didn't get much out of this movie, the action is ok, the special effects are laughable by todays standards. The only good thing about this movie is Fu Sheng. The ending, is the ones i hate most, where the ending is explained by a little paragraph, aarrrgghhh thank goodness that doesnt happen anymore!!

4/10

*** NA CHA THE GREAT - Another fantasy film riding on the "new wave", this time with Chang Cheh in charge. The first time Fu Sheng didn't annoy me

I guess you can take this flick as some Chinese fairy tale. The story is about a young lad named Na Cha (Fu Sheng), sheltered by his military Father (Lu Ti), who leaves his cozy confines at home to explore the world. Na Cha finds out that life is hard already but the officials, guards, and demons in the world, seem to make everything much harder by pushing the common people to the edge. Siding with the common folks, Na Cha, with new gung fu skills learnt from a Taoist (Li Yun Chung), takes on and kills 2 guys from the Waterworld which is ruled by the Dragon King (Chiang Tao). One of the guys killed is the Dragon King’s 3rd son (Fung Hark On), so he really pissed off and comes to dry land to see out Na Cha and his Father. The Dragon King demands Na Cha’s life and if he cannot have this, he will report to the Heavenly world Na Cha’s “treachery” and then let loose the sea on the little sea village that Na Cha’s family lives in, thus killing all its inhabitants. Being the good lad that he is, Na Cha complies with the Dragon, and kills himself to not bring the Dragon’s wrath on his village. Thankfully, Na Cha is re-born again and comes back to earth with his fire tipped spear and “Wind Fire Wheel” to free the common folks from oppression and to take on the Dragon King once and for all.

Summary: ok

Since I saw the English dubbed version, and since I have never liked a dubbed version I've seen, I didn't really like this movie. It's got some nice effects, but it's nowhere as appealing as the "Feng Sheng Bang" and some other TV series where the Na Cha legend was presented. Still, it was nice to be reminded of the myth that Na Cha was reincarnated through a lotus and that he had to defy his parents and later fight his father.
