Great Classic, Bad DVD
4 June 2002 | by (Seoul, Korea) – See all my reviews

This movie is a classic of the late star Alexander Fu Sheng. Here, he plays a guy who gets in trouble back home and is then sent to San Francisco. He finds work at a Chinese restaurant but after getting fired for standing up to gangsters, he joins a rival gang and makes it big.

The current DVD versions of the film are horrendous. Too bad, since this is an all-time classic.

8 out of ten for the movie, 0 out of ten for the DVD transfer.
