Xiao he shang chu ma / Little Heroes of Shaolin Temple. 1972.

Xiao he shang chu ma /  Little Heroes of Shaolin Temple. 1972.
 1. Per the film's title, the Ninja masters this time out are adolescents. Disaster reigns supreme when the Prince of Blood invades a Shaolin temple. Most of the adults are killed, and it looks bad for Our Side. But the "little heroes" come through in a manner that would make their elders proud.
2. What a bizarre little film. What the story is really about or who the little kids are is not worth worrying about in this film. It is the amazing acrobatics that should entertain you through this movie. The scene where a drunk kid dances around a table with a bottle is pretty amazing as are the balancing acts.
