Delightful cast turn out an enjoyable chopsocker
27 May 2002 | by (Swindon, UK) – See all my reviews

Phillip Kao turns mini egg timers before he kills his latest opposition. `Dying time', he exclaims in a ridiculously deep overdub, and then proceeds to pound the life out of the poor combatant. It's all in the name of progress, though, as how else can he and his lunatic no-willy boss expect to sell on stolen antiques to dastardly westerners. Luckily Tino Wong and friend Dragon Lee resist them, but they're no match for Kao and the new recruit John Liu. However John and Tino have a common purpose: both are last descendants of the Stone Rock Fist, and ultimately unite to bring justice into this crazy kung fu town. The stellar cast provides high enjoyment in this cheesy chopsocker, including some stunning backward edits in a remarkable two-on-one finale that'll have you howling in your seats. Hong Kong phooey at its mad best.
