|The Kung Fu Instructor (1979)|
|Starring:||Ti Lung, Wang Yu, Ku Feng, and Wang Lung Wei|
High and low camera angles are used to full effect within The Kung Fu Instructor. Chung Sung grabbed a great deal of coverage with his films, and by doing this he gave a relatively larger scope and depth of realism to his movies. The differences between some other martial arts films and what is happening here might be subtle, but when you start paying attention to the nuances – it becomes obvious how different Chung was. This was, afterall, the glory day of the Shaw studio, and budgets were much more outlandish. His work here is visually different, but he still manages to sell the finished product as a highly capable action-fest. Featuring a kinetic energy that is reminiscent of Lau Kar Leung, Sun Chung’s The Kung Fu Instructor starts off strong and steadily becomes more and more action oriented as the film moves along. Some of the choreography provided by Tang Chia is astounding, and the training sequences that take place towards the conclusion of the film are also worth mentioning for their excellence.
