This is one of the best movie that features Angela Mao's kung fu action.
Golden Harvest really had original style when they came into existence in the early '70s, and this movie is different in its looks and feel from other kung fu movies of its time. There's more details to the story, and each character gets more character development. In this movie Angela Mao's character gets cornered into fight in Thailand to redeem the honor of her father, and the Chinese kung fu.
The movie's English title is "The Tournament". As the title indicates, Angela and her brother played by Carter Wong fights in a Thai kick boxing tournament. Angela Mao shows her amazing skills in this movie, and she's in her top form. The movie is also beautifully shot, and its quality is a notch or two above similar movies of the era.
Treat yourself to the breath taking skills of Angela Mao in this movie. You won't be disappointed.
