I've been watching every martial arts movie ever made in chronological order. This movie is a milestone in the history of the genre. This movie stands out as different from every movie before it and affected many movies to come. The director started with the purpose of introducing real martial artists for the fight scenes and he scored three aces in a row with Don Wong, John Liu and Jang Lee Hwang. The difference was simply the kicks. It boggles my mind that is was so simple as kicks but read any review about this movie and count how many times kicks are mentioned. This is a martial arts movie all about the kicks and it's one of the best. The kicks can't be faked, they are real, they are focused, on target, and full of power. Who would have guessed that a kick to the head could be so entertaining? The storyline or plot has often been commented upon. This is a revenge plot but initially the plot appears to be a tournament plot or no plot at all. Let me point out when John Liu asks the little boy why he wants to learn martial arts the boy replies he wants to beat up the bad guys. John asks him how can he tell who is a bad guy? That's what the first part of the movie is all about, figuring out who are the bad guys and who are the good guys. The white eye brows villain had been around for years so Jang Lee Hwang did nothing new by putting on the makeup but once the makeup was on him, he totally owned that part for the rest of his career. Overall this one belongs on the top twenty of all time.
