Kung Fu Attack of the Mushroom People
I love the Shaw Brothers.
Everyone makes a mistake.
This movie is their mistake.
It's almost an "it's so bad it's good" movie but not quite. I wince every time I think about the guy in the bird suit. Oh yes, a giant bird suit with a disgusting pot belly and a brain sort of thing sticking out on top. It is pretty hilarious when the main character stupidly runs right off the edge of a huge cliff. Literally: ahhhhhhhhhhh... But 30-minutes later he falls off the SAME CLIFF! He must have taken brain damage on the first fall, but luckily Big Bird catches him the second time.
The fight choreography is awful. They jump off the right side of the screen and out of a set, and it cuts to a fight in a wide open field with no building nearby for miles. The spinning disk weapon is done terribly with an annoying sound effect.
Cripes, I could go on and on.
Skip this one.
