Kung Fu Princess

In 1976 I had decided that becoming a preacher like my father was not to be my destiny, and thanks to the help from two of Dad's brothers who worked all their lives at a U.S. Steel plant I got a job with the bricklayers who would tear out and re-line the furnaces with brick that could hold the molten steel. One of the new bricklayer apprentices was only a few years older than I was and one day during our lunch break the conversation turned to the movies we had watched. This fellow had just watched a Kung-Fu movie, possibly this one, and he thought it was one of the most exciting movies he had ever seen. I was just starting to watch movies, and had never encountered a Kung Fu movie, and I was curious as to why he was so enthusiastic about the story. When trying to explain it, he mentioned that there was plenty of fighting between the men and even the girls in the movie . . . I asked if it was like John Wayne fighting the outlaws and he explained that it was even better than that . . . The fighters could fly through the air like Superman, and the Kung Fu fighters could even turn somersaults in the air and land with fists swinging . . . And a magician could disappear and reappear and make fire and explosions by waving his arms . . . So I asked if it was science fiction like "Logan's Run" that I had just seen . . . No, he replied, it isn't about the future as much as it is about the mysterious orient and how Chinese Emperors ruled their kingdoms . . . So I asked if it was in Chinese how could he understand what was happening, and he reassured me that all of the actors were speaking perfect English . . . With British accents! . . . Well, from that day in 1976 it wasn't until now, in the waning days of 2014 that I am watching my very first Kung Fu movie, and I am terribly happy that I have finally been exposed to a genre of motion picture that has only a cult following, but deserves so much more. After finishing it and enjoying the action, I am still not clear on all of the details, but the sinister General Black has fought and conquered Phoenix Island and the Golden City and the young princess escapes with her life and not much more. Now, nineteen years later General Black has a teenage daughter princess referred to in the story as the Black girl, and the banished princess from Phoenix Island has also grown into a teenager who is skilled as a master Kung Fu fighter. All of the followers of the banished Phoenix kingdom have a tattoo on their back of a mighty bird, and all of the followers of the evil General Black have starburst tattoos on their chests. Soon the fight is on and of all things, the Black girl princess joins the banished princess and they change identities and both fight for the right of the banished people to return to Phoenix Island. The action is fast, the fighting is fierce, and the two teenage girls are fighting side by side with the bravest Kung Fu fighters . . . . Now if you are like me, and have never watched a Kung Fu action adventure, I highly recommend that you pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter over it and enjoy the show.
