He Has Nothing But Kung Fu 1977

  • 4.4
  • mature audiences
Directed by the legendary Liu Chia Yung and starring Liu Chia Fai and Wang Yue, HE HAS NOTHING BUT KUNG FU has been hailed as one of the best kung fu films of all time. After a fierce battle with the local hoodlums, Hoi is thrown over an embankment and left for dead. However, Hoi survives the ordeal but has lost all of his memory. His fateful meeting with a beggar leads to their teaming up as "Kung fu's deadly duo!" HE HAS NOTHING BUT KUNG FU has nothing but mind-boggling kung fu fighting! As true to the "chopsocky" theme, the dubbing is questionable and the fighting is incredible. The title sequence (presented in a scrunched anamorphic frame that suggests a hint of the proper aspect ratio that is lost in the rest of the transfer) sets the tone: not too serious but prepared to kick serious ass!

This is a great piece of chopsocky, blending comedy and action together into a potent blend. Sure it's silly at times, and the "comedy" won't be to everyone's standards, but by the time the final battle rolls around none of that matters. The camerawork during the fight scenes is frenetic, but never distracting — even the zoom-ins and -outs aren't as disorienting as I've seen them in other films. This is exciting, fast-paced filmmaking of a kind they don't make anymore.

GOOD MOVIE

A GREAT MOVIE

good movie

one of the good ones!!!

It kept freezing up all through the movie. I like most of all of Gordon Liu movies, but most martial arts movie that i enjoy don't have guns or cars in them. over all it was ok.

It Was Good

pretty good!

really great plot for a kung fu movie, still plays with the early kung-fu film practice of quick and decisive ending
