Ten Brothers
Year: 1995
Director: Lee Lik-Chee
Writer: Vincent Kok Tak-Chiu
Cast: Kenny Bee, Cheung Man, Law Kar-Ying, Tsui Kam-Kong, Sik Siu-Lung, Kok Siu-Man, Yuen King-Tan, Moses Chan Ho, Yip Chuen-Chun
The Skinny: More stuff that should probably be avoided. There obviously is an audience for these "kung-fu kids" extravaganzas, but who will admit to being a part of it?
Review
by Kozo:
     Ick. It's one of those screwy comedies starring Kok Siu-Man (the little fat kid) and Sik Siu-Lung (his kung-fu pal). While the two are in possession of their own cottage industry, the movies they're churning out are far from any good. Ten Brothers continues the trend, though it substitutes director Lee Lik-Chee for usual partner-in-crime Chiu Yen-Ping. That change does little to save this film, though.
     Kenny Bee and Cheung Man star as a poor couple who inherit some farmland containing a magical bracelet of the gods. From the bracelet spawn ten superpowered brothers, who stand to help the couple. Unfortunately, evil General Wu (Tsui Kam-Kong) wants to use the brothers for their benefit. They turn briefly, but as you would expect all the "good" people join forces to take out the "bad" people.
     There's also comedy, which is unfortunate. The gags are of the wacky, low-brow variety, and the presence of Kok Siu-Man is near-painful. In the end, this movie will probably be a hit for its target audience: kids. For the rest of us, it could induce Incredible Hulk-like rage and possible years of therapy. (Kozo 1995)
