Title: Return to the 36th Chamber 少林搭棚大師 Year: 1980 Director: Liu Chia-liang 劉家良 Casts: Liu Chia-hui 劉家輝, Wang Lung-wei 王龍威, Chen Szu-chia 陳思佳
This follow-up to the classic The 36th Chamber Of Shaolin shows kung-fu's the illustrious Liu brothers at their lethal best. Director Liu Chia-liang has more than a few new kung-fu tricks up his monk's sleeve as he transports brother Gordon Liu Chia-hui back to the Ching Dynasty and the Shaolin Monastery. And not just any part of the monastery, but the clandestine 36th chamber, where the most advanced methods of kung-fu are taught to the deserving few. Alas, Gordon is not one of the anointed elite and must find a way to covertly observe the secret training in order to obtain the skills necessary to battle the hated Manchus. Though the movie's conclusion is never in much doubt, the Liu Brothers have a lot of fun getting from points A to Z with plenty of murder and mayhem in between.
