Review Watching King Boxer you probably aren't going to be as amazed by the kung fu as you would have been in 1973, but it does feature some fine, memorable moments during its fight scenes, reaching a pinnacle with the climactic battle. I was never less than on the edge of my seat when watching the film, though, as the action is fast and furious without even a moment for the film to even think about becoming boring...Lo Lieh is also a charismatic lead, exuding a kind of quiet, measured confidence in a way that not only colors his characterization but also his fighting style. Other actors can't match his screen presence, but I really thought the leader of Chao Chih-hao's school, Sifu Shen Shin Pei, looked exactly like Meryl Streep, if she was an old bearded Chinese dude. It was just something about his eyes. Think about that when you watch it...King Boxer is a fine film, even ignoring it's importance to the history of kung fu films, but because of that importance, I'd argue this is essential viewing for any student of cinema. Thanks to it's quick pace and exciting fights it is also an excellent introduction to kung fu, and in particular the work of the Shaw Brothers' studio.

David Johnson, DVD Verdict The action is great...it is no surprise why it is lauded as the work that kicked off the American 1970s kung-fu craze. A classic...
