Aro Recommended Iron Monkey


aka: Siunin Wong Fei-hung tsi titmalau
Hong Kong 1993, 86 minutes
Dir. Yuen Woo Ping
In Cantonese , English with English subtitles
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Action/Adventure / Martial Arts

Topics: Period - 1800s.

Feat. Donnie Yen


Aroview: Enjoyably charged with wacky humour, this fairly traditional Hong Kong slambam concerns a doctor and his daughter who must track down a notorious outlaw - Iron Monkey -in 19th century China.

Storywise this is much of a piece with the period classics of Tsui Hark (who produced), but is distinguished by its dazzling action sequences, which climax in a daredevil fight atop burning poles. Directed by the action choreographer of THE MATRIX, CROUCHING TIGER and KILL BILL, this is a chance to see Woo Ping at work on his own turf.
