Summary: Marvelous fight scenes

Could it be, a Taiwanese ninja movie having the best fight scene in any pre-1985 movie I've seen? I don't know about best fights, but one of the best is not an overstatement. Fast-paced slick action throughout, with adequate/tolerable speedup. Obviously, having talents like Lo Rei helps.

[7/10]

Abbot White (Jack Long) of the Wu-Tang temple is trying to master the Ying/Yang style to become invincible and become ruler of the martial world. To realize his thirst for domination in the martial world, Abbot White teams up with the I-Ho ninja society of Japan because they too want to destroy Shaolin. Abbot White and the I Ho Ninjas burn down Shaolin and many of Shaolin’s finest perish, that’s including Lung Wu (Chang Shan), Abbot White’s arch rival. Before dying, Lung Wu passes on the secret Shaolin finger jab manual to his daughter so that she can pass it on the next building blocks of Shaolin. The building blocks for Shaolin are a couple of guys led by Master Hung’s (Mark Long) son, Weng Ting (Alexander Lo). After Weng Ting and his buddy master the Shaolin finger jab, they go to take on and kill a ton of Ninjas until ultimately meeting with Shaolin’s main nemesis, Abbot White. The flick was enjoying, but if you are not used to some crazy, fantasy-like gung fu (especially Abbot White’s training), then you may want to skip this one.
