 I feel like Taiwanese kung fu flicks have to be graded on a curve since so many of them are fairly awful things. So with that in mind this one isn't that bad. Unfortunately the audio is pretty shitty on the DVD that I own of this but the story itself, although standard as it is, is pulled off well enough. The main villain(Wei Tung) here has some sweet extra-bushy eyebrows and thanks to the sub-par DVD his hair looks blue so that's pretty cool. His underling(Bao-Yun Tan) has what appears to be a cold sore on his bottom lip for much of the movie which I found quite distracting but it did add to his sleaziness(also the fact that he stole our hero's(John Liu) wife helped with this judgment). The soundtrack is obviously mostly lifted from a spaghetti-western(HANG EM HIGH I think?) which does add to the epicness. So in summation as far as really cheap kung-fu films go this one isn't the worst you could suffer through and in addition to all the chopsockey it has people getting locked in cages and turned into nutjobs which is something to see. AKA THE MAR'S VILLA(this would sound very sci-fi to me if I didn't know that the main character's name is Mar) Known in Germany as SHAOLIN: WAITING LIST OF DEATH(I guess they weren't down with Wu Tang)
