231 SB KUNG FU : ‘ Shaolin Mantis ‘
‘ Shaolin Mantis ‘
Cast : David Chiang, Huang Hsing-hsiu
Director : Liu Chia-liang
The son of an imperial official was sent by the emperor to gather information about a plot to overthrow the government. Disguised as a scholar, he successfully became a tutor to the daughter of the coup plotters. Little did he expect to fall in love and marry her …
Huang Hsing-hsiu is not only pretty and adorable, but has displayed surprisingly good martial arts skills. David Chiang is equally impressive with his fighting skills especially with many different weapons. The script is quite well done except for the finale.
Rating : 4 stars of 5
