Stay With This One
8 July 2000 | by (Brooklyn, USA) – See all my reviews

This begins slowly, no different than any other martial arts film of the time. It gradually becomes a wild anti-Japanese tome not unlike "Hammer of God". It also becomes a precursor to "Game of Death", as the two heroes enter a fortress containing ever-increasing dangers. Give this a chance, it contains some of the wildest fighting sequences of the time.
