Average Chan Movie, 8 September 2012
Author: mbmnow from Glendora, CA

First I am a Chan junkie. I am currently attempting to fill my library with every movie I can find. I received this one with a set of 5 2 weeks ago. I am currently watching the movie for the third time. As current holder of 27 of these movies(on DVD, VHS and internet ) I am a little bias when reviewing as I like to watch these movies on a weekly bases. As for this specific title I rated 6 out of 10 as it is reviewed as a Chan film. The story is a normal one, actors range from good to average. Some of the actors are very well known both in Chan films and other movies. Personnaly I found the movie interesting and very enjoyable to watch. Since this is a early Chan with Warner Oland it was produced by a very well known studio. Production values are considerably better than those from the ones made at the send of the series at Monogram. The script was not bad and the actors were able to make it enjoyable. I have always felt that you are either a Chan fan or not, if you are you will enjoy this movie. If not, you may find it a little slower that some others in the series.
