Really great combination of campy fun and serious drama, with great choreography keeps you on your toes the whole movie. Are most martial arts movies this good or is it down hill from here?

I gotta point out how cruel the story ends up treating the bad guy, but that's one of the pros of the movie, that Sammo Hung doesn't give you a movie of black and white morality, or any definition of what makes a bad guy or a good guy. Some really good fight scenes with acrobatic skills and speed, and some crazy characters to go along with it that, like most of Hung's movies, create this grotesque world of caricatures and folklore.

This is a very enjoyable film with very well choreographed scenes, nice martial skills and good sense of humor. What was odd for me was the story, sometimes very tragic in a ligth themed movie, that put me off. Overall a very good martial arts movie.

I'd never seen Sammo Hung in anything before this, but this was an excellent start for me. The story isn't anything revolutionary, and some of the humor falls flat (due in part to oddities in translation) but the action scenes are top-notch. I love fight scenes like these, where they never really use any cable rigging, and definitely no CGI or over-the-top special effects to distract from the two (or more) guys fighting. I say it's like watching a ballet, but with violence.

Ok kung fu movie with some nice choreography . Could make a bit more sense if the butcher was not that fat. The murder scene was a bit too serious compared to the rest of the movie.

"I think I broke my ass!". The choreography is the most flagrant awesomeness here, but there's also some beautifully impertinent in- and outzooming (among other things) affirming the film's high-strung tone, and the opening has a poetic quality, a hilarious poetic quality.

I'd seen several classic kung fu movies prior to this, mostly Bruce Lee's, but the genre hadn't yet grabbed me. It wasn't until later that I became a fan of it. But for a casual viewer, Magnificent Butcher sparked something - it was just so fascinating by kung fu terms that it made me like kung fu. And I suppose its Three Stooges level of slapstick helped soften the blow of the silliness present in others of its kind.

Close to perfect. Woo Ping was on fire back then--there's one incredibly creative fight after another here. Hung is hilarious as usual... Wildcat had me in stitches too. The story veers between comic misunderstandings and serious tragedy, but it mostly does so with grace; the pivotal murder is a notable exception--to me, its horror stood out as far too real and serious in comparison to the rest of the film.

A terrific performance by Sammo, with great humor throughout, featuring a variety of crazy, unique styles. (Including the dreaded cat!) The story of Sammo avenging his brother's death is standard stuff, but the delicious humor and superb choreography make it a true martial arts classic. The final fight is simply amazing.

This is Sammo's masterpiece. Kwan Tak Hing doing kung fu calligraphy is simply awesome.
