The Asian actor dressed up as the black American fighter towards the end of the movie is a parody of Hollywood's casting during that time. Hollywood often cast white people to play Asians, so they cast an Asian man to play a black American. See more »
I am a big fan of movies coming from Hong Kong, though I must admit that I go for Hong Kong movies made from the early '80s to the present day - I find Hong Kong films from the '70s to be fairly dull and mostly indistinguishable from each other. But I enjoyed this early Sammo Hung movie. True, there isn't a great plot here - the plot only starts after thirty minutes, and it moves VERY slowly. And I think there will be some viewers who will be offended that a character of African descent is portrayed by an Asian man in an afro wig and blackface. But despite flaws like those, the movie overall is fun. The fights are pretty good, and the movie's sense of humor (mostly in a slapstick vein) is genuinely funny at times. The movie is a good showcase for Hung's fighting and comic skills, and will entertain fans of Hong Kong movies.
