I have this on DVD from China, no dubbing, just the most hilarious subtitles I've seen, which bear no relevance to what the actors are saying whatsoever. I'm sure the person who wrote them did it on purpose, for their own amusement.
Anyway, the film itself: paper thin plot about some bad guys trying to kill someone and some good guys trying to stop them. Thats it. Cue the most over the top but entertaining fight scenes, extremely dodgy acting and sets made out of papier mache. This film actually had me in tears, laughing, some of it is so bad. However, the fight scenes are great and since this is what 90% of this film consists of, its worth watching. Especially as you have some famous actors like Ti Lung in it. One of those films you'll feel stupid for enjoying.
