No doubt released to cash in on the new weekly series, this seven-year-old television movie is actually just an extension of the mid-’70s show. Still wandering around America’s Old West, Kwai Chang Caine (Carradine) tangles with opium smugglers, befriends a beautiful widow, and meets a son (Lee) he never knew he had. Kung Fu: The Movie goes out of its way to be complex and mysterious, but it all boils down to the same old moves. C+
