One of the best Hong Kong action movies before 1985
18 April 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

You have seen these kinds of movies before. Like many kung-fu movies at this time, it combines laugh out loud humor, with many fights. What brings this movie up above the many clones of this time is the director, Yuen Woo Ping. The man that brought you the fights from The Matrix and Fist of Legend, brings you a movie with some of the most amazing fight choreography ever filmed. In many ways this movie is the superior to Fist of Legend, when it comes to the fights. There are more of them, they are much more fluid, they do not have the sped up film of FOL, and they are just so much fun. The story itself is not much to talk about, but the actors seem to enjoy their role, and there really are some fun moments. If you like any of these late 70's early 80's kung fu movies, you must get this one. It is a step above the rest, and really should be more popular then it is.
