Full movie description "Return of the Chinese Boxer":In wake of the First Sino-Japanese War (1894-1895), a group of Japanese warlords calculate that the best way to prepare an invasion of the rest of China from their southern Manchuria staging ground. They form an alliance with General Tao, a major power broker in the kingdom, prompting other Chinese generals to rally against him. The chief asset among these patriots is martial arts master named "Rapid Fist" Sau Pai-lung who subsequently thwarts every assassination attempt and other acts of subversion committed by the Japanese forces. Unable to vanquish Sau with battalions of riflemen and ninjas, the invaders enlist the services of several notorious killers, including pole-fighting monk Yin Feng and ruthless gunslinger Black Crane. They attack Sau with an array of exotic weaponry including a double-barrel shotgun that resembles an over-sized fan. At one point, when the Japanese find their backs against the wall, they use magic to bring back three men from the dead, transforming them ...
Reviews of the Return of the Chinese BoxerAfter the washed up kung-fu star Jimmy Wang Yu was effectively exiled to Taiwan and became something like the Ed Wood of martial arts cinema, he confused a lot of people by borrowing relatively "classy" intellectual property he was formerly involved with for his newer exploitation films, so let's be clear: this movie doesn't have much relation to his starring role in The Chinese Boxer, an old prototypical basher that inspired Bruce Lee. This is more or less the slightly crazier sister film to Master of the Flying Guillotine. I'm not sure if this was made before or after, but it was obviously around the same time period, sharing many props, actors and ideas; there's even a 12 minute tournament flashback with almost no relevance to the plot, but it's cool! Hell, it even "feels" more like a tournament than the one in Master of the Flying Guillotine, because you see these weird proto-fighting game characters recurring and advancing up the ladder. That's pretty much the theme of this movie: pointless, but cool.
So the only somewhat comprehensible plot concerns a bunch of ninjas trying to gain favor with some Chinese generals to help them secretly take over "Chiner" (as the fantastic dubbed voices pronounce it). I forgot the rest, but it's all just an excuse for Jimmy Wang Yu to travel the countryside beating up ninjas, evil monks, muay thai kickboxers and kung-fu zombies. Yes, it IS as awesome as it sounds. The choreography is just typical punch-block mid 70s stuff, although it gets pretty good whenever weapons are involved. Good's not really the point, though. Jimmy Wang Yu wasn't much of a fighter, but as the director of the film, he had the power of editing and special effects on his side, which he used to suggest godlike skill; he runs up walls, balances on the tips of pointy weapons, has perfect accuracy with throwing knives, pops peanuts into his mouth by bouncing them off the table, and is generally portrayed as the most awesome, invincible guy in the world (which doesn't buck any trends with this guy's movies). It's sort of a fascinating character portrait of the actual man, whose personality apparently didn't earn him a single friend in the business back then. To give you an idea of the film's tone, Wang Yu impales a guy by throwing a turnip in the first 10 minutes.
Anyway, overpowered protagonists are usually a recipe for boredom, but there wouldn't be much tension regardless. It's not about the plot, it's about the kaleidoscope of cheese, violence, clichés, absurd editing decisions, hilarious amateurish wirework and ridiculous characters with names like "rabbit fist." The final fight is especially memorable, featuring an inexplicable army of creepy Jimmy Wang Yu scarecrows and dozens of pigeons flying in the actors' faces (before John Woo!).
This isn't a conventionally good movie, but it is AWESOME, so it gets a full 10 from me. Do you understand the distinction? 2001: A Space Odyssey is good, but Robocop is AWESOME. This movie's awesomeness is unrivaled.
