Battle Wizard

I watched Battle Wizard last night and it is a crazy fun kung fu film. It stars Danny Lee, from The Killer, as a prince who journeys to the countryside to see if he can live without knowing kung fu. Along the way he encounters a Poison Clan, a snake charmer, a giant red python, a guy with lobster claw hands, and another guy with giant metal chicken feet who breathes fire. The final fight has Lee, who has become invincible by drinking the blood of the red python fighting a gorilla who knows kung fu, and then the lobster and chicken feet guys. Lots of fun fights packed into 72 minutes. There is a US disc of the film and you can rent it from Netflix.
