They form an alliance with General Tao, a major power broker in the kingdom, prompting other Chinese generals to rally against him. The chief asset among these patriots is martial arts master named "Rapid Fist" Sau Pai-lung who subsequently thwarts every assassination attempt and other acts of subversion committed by the Japanese forces.

The pinnacle of Chop-socky Kung-Fu
18 October 2000 | by (Columbia, Missouri) – See all my reviews

This is the most brilliant piece of kung-fu rubbish I've ever seen. Horrible dubbing, such as how the japanese refer to the country of "Chiner" and the 5 sound effects used in the movie all add up to a delightful movie experience. It is without a doubt the most stirring actor-driven emotional drama I have ever seen. Plus, the more people you have, the more fun it gets! I totally recommend it!
