ej's kung-fu capsule review for films of the chop-socky old-school - 1. basic plot type - revenge; secret style; long training sequences
2. plot construction - tries hard to be good
3. dramatic - yes
4. funny - tries to be
5. dialog - poor
6. cast performance - so-so
7. crew performance - so-so
8. amount of fighting - lots
9. quality of fighting - good
10. special any cast or crew notes - star li i min also produced, and must be credited with finding a story with real potential; unfortunately, acting doesn't live up to it. director ng see yuen is a credited co-writer and co-producer of the classic Jackie Chan films 'drunken master' and 'legend of the drunken master'.
11. big positive - none
12. big negative - none
bottom-line - who should see this movie - kung-fu completists with a Saturday afternoon to waste.
