Goofs

One character is seen in trousers by the knee and a jacket in a cave and, in the next scene, the character splashes into a pond screaming for help. Another character takes the first out of water, topless and wearing see-through long underpants, which were impossible to find in such a cave, and impossible to dress up in the short time implied between the two takes.

Solid Kung Fu action
26 August 2005 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

The fast pace of the film covers a lot of creaky film making. The plot basically follows the heroine as she attempts to get to her uncle after her husband is killed by the Flying Guillotine Squad.

What does this film deliver? We get a kung fu heroine whose fighting ability scares all the bad guys. We get gimmick kung-fu weapons galore. We get a brief topless woman kung fu fight (we need more of these). And we get well choreographed fights every 5 minutes.

The director is not in the same class as Cheng Cheh or Liu Chia Liang but the film never runs out of gas so the occasionally strange direction doesn't gets in the way. The director seems more comfortable with the drama scenes. The film is less grim then "The Flying Guillotine".

A good kung fu film, not a waste of time.
