I saw this film many years ago and it is one that has stayed with me ever since. Like most of the Kung Fu films at the time the picture quality makes you think you're watching a dud but then as you get into the movie you're just following the story and appreciating the fight scenes. I especially liked the fact that there were a female exponents of the arts and that they were more than able to hold their own against the men folk. The basic storyline is that there is a girl who a man (baddie) wants to marry so her brother says that if he can beat her then him then his other sister at Kung Fu then he can marry his sister (got that?) Needless to say he cannot beat the girl but then has the idea of promising a thousand dollars to anyone who can beat her. That person will get the money when they turn over the girl to him. What you then have is a succession of men trying their luck with no success. In the meantime our hero takes up the challenge and because the girl likes him she lets him beat her. However then the baddies father who is the major kung fu villain steps in. The final fight scene is terrific and the film has genuine funny moments. This film is out of DVD at a bargain price it is a bargain. I would have paid twice as much to own it. A great Kung fu movie.
