Series of Fights Strung Together by a few Threads of Plot
This bizarre martial arts film is about a young Chinese man wandering around Japan in search of revenge, and the allies he picks up along the way. The head of a local martial arts school, who is also an arrogant murderer, has wronged many people, and our hero is going to exact vengeance.
There are a lot of strange flourishes and eccentricities in this film which can become very confusing if you let them. There is a nicely developed romantic subplot and a school vs school subplot which is, perhaps, underexploited here. But the value of this film is mostly wrapped up in the exceptional martial arts scenes - great settings, exciting action, excellent choreography.
Recommended for genre fans.
