The Hero

The Hero

AKA: Rage of the Master, Rage of the Tiger, Hero


Director: Wang Hung Chang

Stars: Jimmy Wang Yu, Tiger Yang, Chiao Chiao

This old-school kung fu movie features the standard revenge plot (Wang Yu plays a somewhat cowardly guy who wants to hire Tiger Yang to take revenge for the death of his parents) and is frankly pretty boring for about the first hour of the movie. But the last half-hour is pretty much solid, well-choreographed action with lots of bloody deaths. It's not Wang Yu's best stuff by any measure, but it's worth a viewing if you're a fan or just want to check out some solid old-school antics.

RATING: 6.75
