One of Golden Harvest's Best
2 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a high quality classic that may be said as Golden Harvest's "Five Deadly Venoms", and in this movie character Angela Mao portrays actually uses venom from the scorpion to do away with her enemies.

Angela Mao plays the role of an orphan who was brought up in Shaolin temple. As she matured, she became skilled in kung fu, but also not fit in terms of behavior to stay at the temple. She makes her life as a pick pocket in the streets, but she's also after the four men who killed her father, and sent her mother to jail.

The usual high quality visuals, and intricate story development of Golden Harvest's movie is evident here. Along with "The Tournament" this movie features the best of Angela Mao's kung fu skills. After seeing this movie, it's evident that she is something very special in terms of star quality, and the martial arts, and acrobatic skills. There is no one I can think of that has these qualities to the degree she has even to this day.

The movie is definitely a kung fu movie classic, made extra special by the presence of Angela Mao.
