Definitely a movie not to be forgotten
3 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm writing this not really as a review but to voice my agreement with the two previous excellent reviews. For fans of the genre this a movie not to be forgotten. Starting with the actors, Linda Lee Ying appears in her final role. She was unforgettable in her role in Drunken Master as the extremely flexible fighter and mother of the girl Jackie Chan insulted. Roy Horan also appears but this time it seems he is just there to show off his manly beard. The final fight is at that courtyard somewhere in South Korea where so many of these movies were filmed. I wish I knew the name of the place as I'd love to visit it. Though a bit short, the final fight of Cliff Lok versus Jang Lee Hwang was excellent.Even though I've watched over 1500 movies of this genre I hardly heard of this one despite its obvious big budget and many big named stars. I think if it were not for the VHS rental craze that swept the world in the 1980's most of these kung fu movies would have crumbled to dust and been forgotten forever. Back then every movie ever made was transferred to VHS and boxed with an exciting picture and new title. On the way home from work on Friday everyone came out of the VHS rental store with an armload of movies for the weekend. The decision of what to rent was based on the appearance of the package alone. So today the only way to watch this movie is the VHS transfer version - all square with 320 resolution and terrible dubbing. I'd love to see this one restored but that dream will not come true.
