Dragon Lee vs. Five Brothers (1978)
IMDb plot summary: There was none, which is disappointing because I was more than a little hazy about the movie's plot.
Directed by Shi-hyeon Kim and Yueh-Lin Liu. Starring Dragon Lee, Chi Chu Chin, Hyeong-Kan Choi, and Min Kyu Choi.
While there's something kind of charming about the low-budget feel to this movie, a little of that goes a long way. Worse, I had absolutely no idea what was going on this movie. We get plenty of flashbacks that don't explain anything, LOTS of characters who aren't ever really introduced to us, and a fuzzy plot that just got fuzzier as the movie went on. This may be my least favorite of kung fu week.
Flickchart: #1892 out of 2224, below In the Mood for Love and above The Good Son.
