Diamond in the Rough
22 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film features the very unfortunate combination of an extremely talented cast and extremely poor production quality. The Kung Fu is some of the best you will see in films from this era: both stars are exceptional, as is the main villain. There is almost no use of wires, the editing isn't choppy and designed to mislead, and at first glance there doesn't seem to be any use of dummies. On the downside, the dubbing is terrible, especially with the ridiculous voices they've chosen for the leads, and the picture quality is quite low. The plot isn't the worst, but is also not especially memorable. The whole thing seems to have been an attempt to feature as much action by the stars as possible, which is perfectly alright, considering their level of accomplishment.
