Alternately known as The Master Killer and Shaolin Master Killer... This is the film to watch if you would like to watch classical martial arts weapons put in action by professional martial artists, not mere actors. Master Killer contains one of the longest and most impressive martial arts training montages ever put to film. I would like to add that Shaolin (2011) is in the same caliber of this movie, but with modern cinematography techniques and beautiful dark forest coloring. Use of the triple section staff (triple-staff)(tri-staff) | Use of Dual Kung Fu swords or Dao (double butterfly) (double broadsword) (double tiger hook) | Use of Bo Staff. In short, you will not grab so much weapon use from any other martial arts movie. - No Such Agency
