Fighting of Shaolin Monk AKA Killer Priest (1981)

I enjoy Netflix movie viewer, since it allows one to watch movies from the comp and all, but trying to watch some of the lesser known kung fu movies like this one can be a trial.
one of many titles
the picture is not good and the sound is non-existant.  it gets decent reviews, but the first 30 minutes are pretty boring (after a good start).  it supposedly tells the story of Da-mo (Tamo, whatever) the priest who travelled from India to China and developed the five animal styles of kung fu.

I didn't think the fights were that good either, and it's full of the US style of "chop-edit" so you don't actually see much real fighting. meh.
