A bit of high kicking fun with Whang!
27 May 2004 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

The usual cast of characters crowd this early 1970s film. Not an unusually good or bad of 'chop-socky'. The highlight for me being watching Hwang In-Shik (Whang Ing-Sik) do some of his most realistic kicking on film. All too briefly, though!

Having trained under the hapkido teacher I can attest to the fact that the few moments where he gets to cut loose in this film better approximates what it was/is like to have him in front of you than in any of his other films, such as Hapkido, Young Master, or Dragon Lord, despite the better quality of those films and greater screen time.

A film worth watching with the usual strengths and weaknesses of the genre at this time.
