| A Defining Kung Fu Film?
When the ruling dynasty in China sends soldiers to destroy the Shaolin Temple, students use their martial arts to defend the school.

Having now seen more than a handful of "kung fu" movies, I am starting to see Chang Cheh as the definitive director of the 1970s, or at least among the top tier. His work is very much what I think of with the generic sort of film. And, from what I understand, this film was one of many that was a big inspiration on Tarantino's "Kill Bill". I believe that.

This is simple film at its best. The sets are not elaborate, but the focus is really just the fights and a touch of humor. The character development is mild, as it should be. This is not an individual struggle, after all.
