Film Review - 'Tiger claw'

Twenty years ago Bruce Lee inspired a kind of film which has popular everywhere in the world since - the kung-fu movie. Tiger claw is another kung-fu film, this one is not likely to be a classic. I don't mean to say that is anything particularly wrong with this movie as a of amusement for an evening, but viewers are likely to forget about it as soon as they walk out of the cinema.

The plot is rather simple - girl is kidnapped by villian, boy rescues her after a series of car chases, shootings, and, of lots of violent hand-to-hand combat. It all happens in Hong Kong, which is the scene for the other five kung-fu films made by director Hu Dekawu. Some of the special effects are very good, while are just ridiculous. If you want to what I mean, look for the scene the hero destroys an armoured car by using just a cigarette and his teeth.

So you go to see this film? Well, if you like this sort of thing, you will probably think it worth five pounds for. If not, I suggest you stay at home and see what is on the TV. your money for the new Spielberg movie coming out next month!
