Review: Jackie Chan plays Lord Ting Chung, who is a local Kung Fu expert and is hired by a wealthy lady to help her take her sick brother to see a doctor, because he only has 3 days before his life becomes fatal, so he has to cross a dangerous village called "Stormy Hill" so he can get to the doctor on time. After picking out some trusty candidates to help him on his mission, including the wealthy woman's 2 sisters and a deaf leather repair man, they head across the mountains to get to the doctor. The dangerous bandits in Stormy Hill are protected by the God of Darts but they have to pay them half there loot. When the God of Darts agrees to help the wealthy lady to cross the mountains, they head of for there quest but all is not what it seems. When they reach there final destination, the ladies brothers true identity is exposed, which leads to a showdown between the goodies and baddies. I quite enjoyed this movie but I didn't understand why they used Star Wars music during the final showdown. Terrible Choice! With that aside, the action scenes were OK and the storyline was pretty straightforward. The director did drag out the epic fight at the end but it's a decent watch for all you Kung Fu fans. Watchable!
Round-Up: This movie was directed by Wei Lo who brought you movies like the Big Boss, Fist of Fury, New Fist of Fury, Killer Meteors, To Kill With Intrigue, Spiritual Kung Fu and Dragon Fist and he has made a lot of movies which I can't pronounce and I doubt that you have heard of them. He is a highly respected director who died in 1996, due to heart failure and is mostly known for the work that he had done with Bruce Lee. I liked the fact that he didn't add comedy to the action scenes but it still looked like the Kung Fu was pretty basic in this movie.
I recommend this movie to people who are into their action/martial arts movies starring Jackie Chan, Pang Cheng and Siu-Lung Leung. 4/10
