Martial Arts Monday: Ninja, The Kung Fu Emperor (1981)


There are only two ninjas in this, and they occupy only the first couple of minutes of this film. Other than that it is straight martial arts all the way with plenty of fights and plenty… of stunted… dubbing.

As with all these films the story is an afterthought to string together the action and the plot behind this is suitably baffling. It’s an ascension story with secrecy and betrayal, you probably know the rest already.

I didn’t particularly enjoy this film but I don’t hate it either, I found it mediocre. At least the DVD worked properly this time.
