    Shaolin Deadly Kicks

    ★★★

    Martial arts actor/filmmaker Wu Ma(JUST HEROES,THE WATER MARGIN[a.k.a.:SEVEN BLOWS OF THE DRAGON]) takes the director's chair for this decent Chinese period piece martial arts actioner that has a young martial artist(Dorian Tan Tao-Liang[HAND OF DEATH{1976},THE LEG FIGHTERS,THE TATTOO CONNECTION]) who takes on a group of thieving bandits who are seeking out a treasure from a stolen map,as it eventually leads to a lethal showdown with their main leader(Lo Lieh[KING BOXER{a.k.a.:FIVE FINGERS OF DEATH},BLACK MAGIC{1975}]),with help in his battle coming from…

    The Cat

    ★★★½

    Japanese genre cinema was an obvious major influence on this wild Chinese science fiction/horror outing that has Waise Lee(A BETTER TOMORROW[1986],BULLET IN THE HEAD) as a successful writer who gets caught up in the antics of a young lady(Gloria Yip[FLYING DAGGER,SAVIOR OF THE SOUL]) and her pet cat that are actually aliens that are out to stop an evil alien entity that has invasion on its mind.
