Thanks a lot acorns!
Your kind generosity keeps the reviews coming!
Chinese Cinema's signature anti-Japanese racism is on full disturbing display in this bloody death-bath.
Bloody missing eye-balls.
The filmmakers put the dubious mindset directly into the text of a film that views Japanese Karate as a brutal style of fighting developed for its power to maim and kill opponents.
That's its excuse.
Grand scale fight sequences give way to a mano y mano battle royale climax that provides for some heavy blood-spewing visuals.
Who needs 3D with this kind of fight action.
That wasn't a question.
Take "The Chinese Boxer" for what it is, racist propaganda with a toxic sense of self-hatred as filtered through stylized martial arts fighting.
Well and thoroughly fucked.
Rated R. 90 mins.
