This cult classic really delivers!
16 January 2007 | by USSEnterpriseFSee all my reviews

I have to say I know of lots of Kung Fu Cult films and I've never even heard of this one until RARESCOPE bought it from the star/producer of Along Comes a Tiger, Wang Tao! It is a remake of the classic western "Once Upon a Time in the West" and features several of the same elements but overall it very unique. It features lots of fights at breakneck speeds. Some of the other HK legends in the film include Philip Ko and Tung Wei (the famous "Kick Me" kid from Enter the Dragon). Another element I liked was the fact that Wang Tao's character Sacred Cloud didn't speak at all (so you don't have to worry about the usual "You killed my father prepare to die!"). Overall I felt Along Comes a Tiger doesn't follow the usual formula of Chop Socky films and proves to be a diamond in the rough. TWO THUMBS WAY UP!

Make sure to buy the RARESCOPE DVD release that features a commentary and several other special features, including an anamorphic widescreen presentation.
