    The 36th Chamber of Shaolin (originally released as Master Killer in the West, ridiculous since the lead character refuses to kill). A brilliant martial arts film that takes its time setting up both the world and training of Shaolin, and pays off tremendously in the end. Gordon Liu keeps impressing me - LOVE the three-section staff - as does director Lau Kar-Leung and his policy of not cutting away until you've seen 8 to 16 moves in camera. Crazy. 3 years 7 months ago

    Very heavy on training compared even to other training-heavy movies. And over before it truly gets going with the awesome action. 2 years 2 months ago
