Which is Stronger, Karate or the Tiger

April 6, 2008

Which is Stronger, Karate or the Tiger (Japan, 1976) – 2,5/5

Kazuhiko Yamaguchi’s rare karate actioner (sometimes mistaken as Dragon Princess) stars Yasuaki Kurata and Toei’s greatest kick & punch villain; Masashi Ishibashi. Kurata’s fight in the tower of death is decent martial arts fun, but the cameraman is misplaced in the middle of the furious fights (half of the time the poor fella seems to dodging kicks instead of capturing the action on film). Good female characters are nowhere to be found in this pic, but at least it’s got two adequate baddies; Ishibashi and, of course, the deadly tiger.
