In my unceasing quest to bring you the best of the worst of martial arts cinema, here is a battle scene from the 1976 Taiwanese film Monkey King With 72 Magic, an adaptation of the Chinese folktale Journey to the West. This shit is indubitably bananas.

In their review of this film, the weirdo world cinema blog Die, Danger, Die, Die Kill! notes, "Though many of its sets are composed of little more than fog and painted backgrounds, this Taiwanese fantasy compensates for its material shortcomings with an antic energy that would do its mischievous subject proud."

Indeed, here is a battle scene between a malefactor and approximately ten-thousand tickle-happy children in wigs. I love how characters are randomly edited out of scenes "using magic," a camera technique I used whenever an action figure died in childhood home movies.
