| Eagle's Claw Has Been Attacked By Chang Yi...Must see!
This movie is one of my favorite classics.The movie starts out with a great intro giving you a good look at the Eagle's Claw technique and it's many styles used.I think it's a plus when a movie gives the viewer a great intro since most of us are strangers to the world of kung fu.Very little fooling around with corny comedy in this movie.So your not in for much of a laugh.I loved Chang Yi's robe and oriental fighting boots giving him an evil and dominant look.Thumbs up for the costume designers in this movie.Lot's of practice and training scenes at the Eagle's Claw school,Mantis Fist, also featured.If you happen to like teacher student movies and fighting trying to accomplish your Kung Fu to get to the top this one is sure to please you!Some movies like Invincible Armor,Hot Cool and the vicious are movies where the fighter or fighters are already at full strength and at there peek in fighting and you pretty much now how good every fighters Kung Fu is already.Here in Eagle's Claw you start at the bottom and work your way up by training and hard work to defeat the evil villain Chang Yi.This movie also gives you a good plot for a Kung Fu movie.Good twists and surprises as the movie ends.A must see!
