It's a 1973 martial arts film!
17 February 2011 | by (Northampton) – See all my reviews

I love this film as I do all early martial arts films.

This film is typical of the 1970's style of early martial arts films, ie not much plot, same plot as other films, more choreographed fighting than dialogue, bad dubbing, etc etc, because of this it is what it is, and highly enjoyable too.

Don't be fooled by the film cover Jackie Chan is not the lead actor and does not get much screen time nor do you see him fight up close much, but you can still see the development of his unique style.

All in all its still a great movie. Try and get the US uncut version so the fight scenes don't feel too disjointed and enjoy it for what it is.

Those who out and out disparage the film should appreciate that without these early films Chan would not have developed as he has.
