Jimmy Wang Yu (star of MASTER OF THE FLYING GUILLOTINE) plays a cab-driver in Taiwan who seems to spend most of his time getting into fights which his Dad has to bail him out of. Dad is trying to save money so he can get an operation to return his daughter's sight. Recently arrived in town are a trio of brothers who have been raised since childhood (by an old woman with a scar) in the martial arts so they can seek vengeance for their parent's deaths. Jimmy's Dad turns out to be the guilty party and it's up to Jimmy to defend his family from their wrath. This movie is equal parts Jackie Chan and Ed Wood in it's execution and inspiration. For every scene that is technically well done their is one that just makes you shake your head and wonder what he was thinking. The final showdown between Jimmy and the scar-faced woman being the best example. "Blasted" shows up in the subtitles a lot but not always in the same context. Sometimes it's used instead of bastard and othertimes it's used instead of just any random exclamation. What the english title KNIGHT ERRANT has to do with anything is beyond me. Check it out if you like old school 70's martial arts mayhem.
