The Shaolin Kids
The Shaolin Kids (aka The Shaolin Death Squad) 1977....
I'm surprised that the reviews aren't screwed up here. There are a few movies (as usual) that can be mixed up in the reviews.
Asian Cinema Guy and InjunNose have it right talking about henchmen taking "golden pills" and "an evil premier who wants to overthrow the ruler", but, james86 mentions Jet Li (which is hilarious) because this movie was made in 1977 and Jet's first movie (Shaolin Temple) was in 1982. James86 is talking about "Shaolin Temple 2: Kids from Shaolin" from 1984 (aka Kids from Shaolin) which indeed has Jet Li but shouldn't be reviewed here. Once again an easy mistake to be made.
There's another movie that I thought would be mistaken here called "Shaolin Death Squads" from 1976 starring Polly Kuan, Carter Wong, Lung Fei and Cliff Lok which could easily get screwed up unless you look at the directors. Both of these movies can be found with the title "Shaolin Death Squad".
This movie was enjoyable.... I give it a 6
