A bizarre film from Wong Jing and company.

Kung-Fu Cult Master is a strange film based upon a series of fantasy novels. This was to be the first of the films. Sadly, the movie didn't make enough money to warrant a conclusion. But don't let that keep you from watching this action packed fantasy film from the lens and pen of Wong Jing.

The movie follows the exploits of Chang Mo Kei (Jet Li). He's out to avenge the deaths of his parents and reclaim his rightful imperial title. Despite being afflicted by a deadly poison and his lack of fighting skills, he's determined to destroy all of those who ruined his life. During his travels, he encounters many strange individuals and characters whom he assembles into a group of fighters who join him in defeating the evil cult who swore to wipe out his royal lineage forever. Can Chang Mo Kei and his motley crew eliminate the Evil Cult before the can do the honors upon him?

A weird but highly entertaining film. I don't know how much this is based upon the fantasy novels but a lot of the dialog and situations are pure Wong Jing. The fight scenes )directed by Sammo Hung) are a sight to behold. This film has so many memorable characters that you'd wish they had finished the series.

Highly recommended just for the sheer madness.
