Five Shaolin Masters (1974)

6/10 - Too much fighting!
Reviewed by Simon on 22 May 2004

Pure Chang Cheh - i.e not much of a story or character development, and tons of slow motion death scenes and... too much fighting! Not often you'll hear me say that.

The first hour is pretty weak, but once the 5 disciples realise they have to master different styles to beat their foes it gives all the fighting more purpose, and the film improves significantly.
