Shaolin Ex-Monk (1978)

John Liu is at his heroic best in this slap-happy kung fu adventure. He plays an undercover Sheriff keen to put an evil ex-monk behind bars. The mysterious monk has turned his back on the holy life and instead become a dangerous martial bandit. Blacky Ko plays the lovable young rogue caught in the middle, torn between his loyalties to his new sifu and his mysterious uncle. Cheung San-yee’s movie is a lot of fun and features some insane early wire-work and a riotous music score, culminating in a kick-fest finale that will leave you wincing in your seat. In a good way.
