Michael Wai-Man Chan,
THE DEVILS TREASURE is a real departure for Golden Harvest productions. It is not really a true wuxia styled martial arts film. Plotwise, it is more of a gangland thriller. The Protagonist (Taiwan actor Chun Hsiang Ko) is a boat captain and diver who is recruited bby the mob to do a job, and dive to the bottom of the ocean to recover treasure. But when they find the treasure, things go horribly wrong. Chun's character makes off the Treasure and hides out in Korea with his wife (Nora Maio) and kid. Eventually the gangsters catch up to him and thats where the fun and intrigue begin. Though not really a martial arts movie, there are a good number of fight scenes there in. The action and fight scenes are really well done (Sammo Hung did some of the fight scenes). THE DEVILS TREASURE was really filmed in Korea and the movie has some beautiful cinematograaphy. And lots of boat chase scenes. Some of the evil Characters have Japanese Yakuza names. Lots of familiar faces in it as well...
