| Once considered the Greatest Martial Arts Film of All Time !!!
I first read Richard Meyers book, From Bruce Lee to the Ninja and in his opinion , The Legendary Weapons of Kung Fu was The Pinnacle of Martial Arts Films !!!! Well flash forward to when they finally did show this movie on Black Belt Theater on KTTV Channel 11 in the late 1980's on a Saturday morning !!! I was amped up and set my VCR to tape it !!! It didn't disappoint but there was something lacking as I considered Dragon on Fire or Enter The Game of Death as the creme of the crop for English Dubbed Kung Fu Flicks !!!! I mean you have the prototype for Ninjas called Pugilists in China before they went to Japan to become Ninjas with all their Ninja tricks and weapons !!! Plus Gordon Liu / Liu Chia Hui and his Brothers, Liu Chia Liang/ Lau Kar Leung and Liu Chia Yung/ Bruce Lau/ Lau Kar Wing !!! Also My Young Auntie herself , Kara Hui , Alexander Fu Sheng and Mad Monkey Kung Fu's Hsaio Ho !!! There were great fights but some silliness which is typical for a Shaw Brothers Flick from that era !!! They do show the 18 weapons of Shaolin in a dual at the end !!! They eventually released the English Dubbed DVD of Legendary Weapons of Kung Fu which I bought but it turned out to be the TV version !!! But I managed to buy a Region 3 DVD of Legendary Weapons of China with Mandarin Language and English Subtitles several years later !!!
