Creative martial arts

SHAOLIN INTRUDERS is another engaging and action-packed Shaw Brothers martial arts epic, once again influenced by the growth of special effects-fuelled blockbusters in Hollywood. Thus we get extra-outlandish fight sequences, with Shaolin monks contorting themselves into all kinds of wacky positions to fight and test our heroes. Chor Yuen veteran Derek Yee handles the hero role well, but his thunder is stolen by a Puckish turn from Jason Pai Paio as his partner in crime and the exemplary supporting cast, including Phillip Ko, Ku Feng, Lee Hoi Sang and Chan Shen. The plot is limited here, but the twists are satisfying and the action excels.

Good Movie

I liked this movie a lot... There's not much I can say that hasn't already been covered by Brian Camp. He covered everything, maybe more than you needed to know.

I thought it was great that he mentioned Lau Yuk-Pok (aka Liu Yu-Po, aka Liu Yu-Pu). He's right, she wasn't in a lot of films. For those who are searching for a little more info about her, i'll input the best I know of.

She was born in Taiwan on May 3rd 1963. She joined Shaw Brothers at their invitation in the 80's and played in "Winner Takes All", "Rolls, Rolls, I Love You", "Shaolin Prince", "Shaolin Intruders", "The Weird Man", "Portrait in Crystal", "Secret Service of the Imperial Court", "New Tales of the Flying Fox", "Butcher", "Thunderclap" and "Qin Yong (aka A Terra-Cotta Warrior)". She returned to Taiwan in 1985 after finishing "Qin Yong", and started a career in TV drama. Later she married Chang Chien-Chung, who worked in an advertising agency, and eventually emigrated to the United States.

In 1991, they gave up their careers to become missionaries. In 2001, she became a writer and published two books about herself as a mother and a patient (I would assume "cancer patient" but cant find a definite answer). She died on May 11th 2009. There's some commentary on the Celestial DVD edition of Shaolin Intruders about her.

Shaolin Intruders

Shaolin Intruders is a fairly decent Kung-Fu film, albeit it may have a bit more humor added to the mix, nonetheless, it is good entertainment.

The fight scenes at the Shaolin Temple are well choreographed and inventive. Two bumbling friends try to find out who is killing renowned house clan leaders, and it takes them to the Shaolin Temple. The only way they can gain access to the Shaolin students to identity their faces, since one of their female friends saw them on a stealing spree, is to get past Shaolin monks, who put up a vigorous defense.

In all, there's some duplicity and scheming involved. It makes for decent action.
