"Holy Grail" of kung fu films-- and how!
I saw a serious kung fu website which referred to this as a "holy grail" of kung fu films. Well, yes-- as soon as you see the swami whose arms can miraculously

extend during a fight (meaning the actor swings two yard-long fake arms around from under his jacket), you will be instantly reminded of things like the rabbit that could take a man's head clean off in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

The fact is, this is a hoot and a half because it isn't a bad bad movie-- which are usually dull. It's just well enough made that you can watch it without getting bored, and the star, Jimmy Wang Yu, has a glowering Charles Bronson-like

presence that is respectable enough. But then it hits you with something like the Extendable Arms™, let alone the crazy bearded bad guy who swings a sort of

velvet hatbox with vagina dentata teeth that supposedly can whip a head clean off (though the physics of such a device are completely improbable), and you're in a realm of delirious, surreal kung fu nuttiness. Every competitor has a weird talent, every character has theme music, every shot has a zoom in it (this IS the 70s). It's something else.
