I remember this one as a little kid. Basically, the kung fu guys go to destroy a Japanese battle ship and all die, except the pretty boy star, who, as I recall, knew very little martial arts. The story is told in flashback fashion, as the pretty boy recalls what happened to his friends. Chang Cheh used to crank these flicks out all the time- every now and then, he'd hit pay dirt, but this really wasn't one of them. The fights were cool, but it all is kind of ridiculous. All the guys that knew kung fu, died glorious deaths- blew themselves up,etc. Kind of a downer, really. You could do worse, but I would not go scouring the internet to find a copy, or anything. Ther are much better Shaw brothers flicks out there.
