     —Bob Bloom, Film Yap

The film has a wonderful sense of humor and engaging action sequences.

     —Vidvues/Tom's Picks, Village Soup

It’s a journey packed with quality martial arts (if slow in some early scenes) that’s by far a more objectively fun movie than Shaolin Mantis, but this is not to say it’s less so worth your time than Monkey Kung Fu, because the opposite is in fact true!

     —Jef Burnham, Film Monthly

Known as Hooray the Bonebreakers Are Here in Germany and Stroke of Death in the U.S., Monkey Kung Fu and Drunken Monkey, this also has an incredible final battle with amazing staff fighting against the drunken monkey boxing style.

     —bandsaboutmovies, Bands About Movies
