The Reviews for The Kid with the Golden Arm (1979) 720p


Shaw Bros. classicReviewed bydworldeaterVote: 10/10

The Kid With The Golden Arm is a classic kung fu flick with the Venom mob reunited once again in front of the screen and the legendary Chang Cheh calling the shots behind the camera. There are many collaborations between The Five Deadly Venoms cast and director Chang Cheh during the 70's and early 80's. All that I have seen are of similar quality to this and deliver. TKWTGA is also the name of the title villain, played by Lo Meng. Meng is a nearly invincible warrior with a muscular build and deadly martial art skills. He also leads a vicious gang who sets to rob a shipment of gold to a famine stricken area. Philip Kwok is the hero of the show. He plays a drunken constable that is quite clever and awesome at kung fu that shows up to help the gold courier escorts guard the gold. The story unfolds with non stop kung fu action. Well choreographed and photographed under the familiar backdrop of the Shaw Bros. studio set. There is an abundance of superhuman kung fu fighting, fights with fists, kicks and a variety of weapons. The action is often bloody with Chang Cheh's signature stomach wound happening frequently. In summary The Kid With The Golden Arm has everything a kung fu movie needs and a top quality entry in the golden era of Hong Kong martial arts cinema.

Quite overrated, I'm afraidReviewed bysarastro7Vote: 5/10

The Kid With The Golden Arm is definitely NOT one of the better kung fu movies I've seen. Although the lead hero is very charismatic, no one else is very interesting, and while I often appreciate kung fu campiness, these supervillain guys (Iron Robe, etc.), and their fighting, just seem silly to me. In fact, I find most of the fight scenes in this movie quite bad. The moves tend to lack technique and precision, and stuff that is clearly impossible - like rolling a sword around your arm - further ruins the experience. Not that I am against supernatural kung fu; I'm not, but it has to be consistent with the overall style and mood of the movie. In this movie, I am just not effectively entertained. If you want to see great fight scenes, get 7 Grandmasters or Shaolin: The Blood Mission.

The Kid With The Golden Arm gets from me a 5 out of 10 rating.

My Favorite Kung Fu MovieReviewed bycortezjaggerVote: 10/10

I saw this movie on "Kung Fu Theatre" when i was an early teen and just fell in love with this action/adventure! I found a copy on VHS a few years back and have damn near worn out the tape playing it... Anyone who has been over for an extended time has been shown this and for the most part the reaction is solid: This is a great film.

One of the shortcomings is also what makes it so powerful: It's a comic book style with a very simple storyline... on the surface. With characters like Brass Head (who gets killed off way to early!), Silver Spear, Iron Robe and the title character, there are very visual and easily digestible stereotypes to hook the young viewer. But on a more subtle lever there are sub- plots galore and of course lots of twists and intrigue woven into this chop-opera...

Compared to "Five Deadly Venoms", which on some levels is a more richer and stronger storyline, "Kid With The Golden Arm" is less dark and brooding. All of the actors seem to play similar characters in both but this one there is a charm to the ones here that still resonate with me to this day...

I totally recommend this if you like fantastical kung fu, especially in light of movies like "Crouching Tiger..." or "Shaolin Soccer..."
