Typical 1970s kung fu cheapie for the most part
28 November 2015 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

As a rule, I generally don't like Hong Kong martial arts movies from the 1970s; I prefer those made in the 1980s or later. If you are wondering why I feel this way, a look at this movie will provide a clue. As I said in my summary line, this is for the most part a typical Hong Kong martial arts movie from the 1970s. It's pretty cheap, with little with what could be called "production values", as well as with appalling dubbing. The story makes little sense; I understood that the character played by Wang Yu was out for revenge for his village's massacre, but little else. The biggest fault with the movie, however, is that it's pretty boring. There's endless talk, and when the characters get around to fighting, the fight sequences are choreographed and directed with little vigor. That is, with the exception of the climatic fight sequence, which is pretty well done in all departments, from direction to choreography. Apart from that sequence, the only genuine merit to be found with this movie is one scene where the soundtrack uses (probably without permission) music originally composed by the great Ennio Morricone for a spaghetti western.
