Superkicker Bruce Leung Siu Lung's best fighting performance of his career. A must see!!
Bruce Leung is seriously spring loaded and he is on fire in this movie. His jumping kicks are the best I have ever seen. Let me talk about the story real quick and then I will talk more about the action.
James Nam plays a Japanese Colonel who is after a secret Chinese document. Wong Yuen San plays an officer who hires Bruce Leung to keep the document safe. That is really all you need to know. Han Kwok Choi, Meng Hoi and others help Bruce Leung out. Meng Hoi looks like he is about 13 years old. This movie is from 1975 and there are tons of recognizable actors playing the villains. Lee Ka Ting, Chan Lau and Chan Lung all get plenty of screen time. The action never lets up and it gets more and more intense as it goes along. There is a good 40 minutes of fighting and it is all VERY good. The final fight is about 10 minutes long. It is truly one of the best fights I have ever seen. Not recommended if you are prone to seizures. It is insane. There is a lot of screaming, a lot of kicking, and it get pretty bloody. Pure hate. Saying it is intense doesn't even begin to describe it. It is a very brutal fight, and I have never seen anything like it before.
Rating- 10/10 As a movie this only gets like a 6/10, but the fighting gets a 100/100. EASILY one of the best kung fu movies I have ever seen.
