breaking down my rating system for lau kar-leung movies: 5 stars = amazing 4 stars = great 3 stars = good not great 1-2 stars = doesn't exist so yeah anyway i don't feel this really earns its conflict very well, it's all quite inconsequential, and by the time lau kar-wing and david chiang get into it, it hit me just how much more i prefer hand to hand combat over weaponry. might be the first time i've seen someone in a kung fu movie learn said kung fu from the actual creature in question. mvp is surely that cute little mantis. it's a total afterthought, though. read more

The acting is great, and David Chiang does some of his best work ever in this very film.

The thing that throws me about Shaolin Mantis, is the plot. Our hero working for the Manchu Emperor against the Ming rebels is just plain weird, and that kind of soured the whole thing from the start. The twist at the end is also odd, and took even more of my read more
