Golden Arm is as good as they say. With just his bare arms, he beat all of us. And if he had weapons...
Iron Feet Yang Hu Yun:
Golden Arm never uses weapons. He claims he doesn't need them, and that using his bare arms is best. And, he's probably right.

The Kid With The Golden Arm is a classic kung fu flick with the Venom mob reunited once again in front of the screen and the legendary Chang Cheh calling the shots behind the camera. There are many collaborations between The Five Deadly Venoms cast and director Chang Cheh during the 70's and early 80's. All that I have seen are of similar quality to this and deliver. TKWTGA is also the name of the title villain, played by Lo Meng. Meng is a nearly invincible warrior with a muscular build and deadly martial art skills. He also leads a vicious gang who sets to rob a shipment of gold to a famine stricken area. Philip Kwok is the hero of the show. He plays a drunken constable that is quite clever and awesome at kung fu that shows up to help the gold courier escorts guard the gold. The story unfolds with non stop kung fu action. Well choreographed and photographed under the familiar backdrop of the Shaw Bros. studio set. There is an abundance of superhuman kung fu fighting, fights with fists, kicks and a variety of weapons. The action is often bloody with Chang Cheh's signature stomach wound happening frequently. In summary The Kid With The Golden Arm has everything a kung fu movie needs and a top quality entry in the golden era of Hong Kong martial arts cinema.
