Great Fighting - not more not less
11 October 2006 | by (Barbados) – See all my reviews

Yeah, it's a little cheesy, it's a typical Bruce Lee Clone Movie and the story isn't really mentionable (alas it's there and even kind of logical.. in the most part). The Quality is OK for this time even if their are some bad cuts..

But if it comes to fighting this one is one of my favorite movies.. I like this "defeat the Master of one Stage after another" thing, there are many different fighting styles and one arrogant master after the other plus there's good old Bolo Yeung in his prime role as Executioner of the bad guy - what do you want more ?

So if you get a Copy and like just plain fighting - enjoy it.
