Legend of the Wolf (1997)

Hey another really old Stoo Review, bare with me.

The Plot: Donnie Yen plays Man Hin, He suffered from amnesia that he contracted while fighting with a group of bandits through the opening sequences. With only glimpses of his past as his guide, he seeks out a woman he once knew and must defend her and the local villagers from bandits with the help of local youth ‘Wai’.

Personal Thought: When I first received this movie through the post, I quickly put it in my DVD player and waited in anticipation to see Donnie Yen. Just after the opening fight sequences I was hit, I knew this film was great. I was then stunned with a good battle between Dayo Wong and two local farmers, yet it turned into an amazing fight sequence with Donnie Yen and a group of Ben Lam’s Bandits. The film soon develops into a tale of Man Hin looking for his lost love, Wu Yee played by Carman Lee. Also with the amazing battle royal with the villagers fighting against the bandits, led by Ben Lam. This film has taken Donnie Yen to higher level, but the film has a terrific twist in the end to do with Carman and Ben. He he he. And I must say no one else could the role of the bandit leader apart from Ben Lam!
