Crippled Masters


Date: 6/13/2013

Starring: Pretty much nobody.  Yes, a couple of people without limbs.

Plot: Two men skilled in the arts of Kung-Fu are betrayed by their master and crippled for life, one left with no arms and the other with no legs. Despite their obvious disadvantages, they learn to combine their martial arts skills and seek revenge against the evil master.


  • Weird special effects sounds (particularly that up and down xylophone sound)
  • Anytime they make fun of someone for being handicapped.
  • Rubbing the mustache
  • Evil Laughs
  • Ghost faced killa beat somebody up
  • Bad guy calling someone a fool or idiot
  • Bitch slapped by a little hand.


  • “If you kill me today, who’s going to provide you with coffins?”
  • “You are a sadistic monster.  One day you’ll get what’s coming to you!”
  • “Now I’ve destroyed your legs.  Let’s see what you can do without them.  Don’t look at me like that.  There’s nothing you can do now.”
  • “You fool!  Let me show you how to collect rent.”
  • “You again?  Well, you don’t seem to like living very much.”

What We Learned

  • The man with no arms always trumps the man with no legs.
  • Viewers are unable to decide whether it’s worse to live without arms or without legs.
  • You can kill a man by pushing your toes into his adam’s apple.
  • You can use your hunch back to attack or defend very effectively.
  • A legless man on top of an armless man is an unstoppable force and holds the secret to unbeatable kung fu, according to some jade horse figurines.
  • In fact that is not a great secret.

Final Take

This movie was a little disturbing to watch at first, but once you got past the initial horror of laughing at the depravity on screen, it was pretty enjoyable.  Look at all those quotes!  The ridiculous sound effects and terrible voice acting were pretty egregious and greatly entertaining.  It really felt like I was watching speed racer, with an extra “ha ha” thrown in any time they felt they needed an extra word for the mouth movements on screen.  I wouldn’t say it’s top 10, 20, but it might be somewhere up there.  And it was definitely memorable.  I’d probably give it a 3/5.
