The Evil Cult
A wild and rollicking martial arts fantasy extravaganza that features prized swords and swordsmen, a crazy monk attached to a rolling boulder, serious clan and cult rivalries, and lots of magic and flying.
I have no idea how to review the Evil Cult. I'm not sure I even understand what happened in the film, after watching it. The titular Evil Cult has three other names, none of which I can remember. Every single character has at least three different names, none of which match what they're called on IMDB. There are seven clans, possibly more, comprised of various different kung-fu masters, all with confusing titles who all seem to answer to weird masters, some of whom appear, some of whom do not.
Jet Li is the star and begins the Evil Cult as a wussy loser who knows no kung-fu. This changes when an old man strapped to a rock runs him down…
Acredito que esse foi o primeiro filme do gênero fantasia do mestre Li, nem dá pra acreditar que a Golden Harvest que lanço o Bruce Lee pro mundo ainda existia em 1993 fiquei bem surpreso.
almost non-sensical to my western eyes, but thoroughly enjoyable, and sad they did not finish the trilogy...
