Kung Fu Carradine
29 March 2015 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Kung Fu Killer stars David Carradine as another 'Caine' type character from his beloved Kung Fu series.

The television movie is actually co-written by David Seidler who would go on to win an Oscar for Best Screenplay for his next film, The King's Speech.

Carradine plays a Caucasian monk called Crane in Shanghai who infiltrates the criminal underworld to find the killers of his spiritual female Grandmaster and thus gain his vengeance.

Carradine was rather long in the tooth for some of the martial arts scenes but he acquits himself well. He joins up in this film with his Kill Bill accomplice, Daryl Hannah who plays a nightclub singer and romantic interest. Hannah is rather wasted in the glamour role especially given how vicious and striking she was in Kill Bill.

Carradine has enough charisma to keep us the audience interested, after all we end up reminiscing about his Kung Fu series from our boyhood.

The television film has a few good set pieces, the plot is rather hokey and the film is rather pedestrian even dull in places.
