Don't let the Title Mislead you.
6 March 2003 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I saw this film under the title of "Lightning Kung Fu," which is strange because it deals with neither lightning or what most people may consider to be Kung Fu action. I propose the the new title be "Chop Chop Constable in a Dark Room." This is not to say that the film is entirely unworthy of being viewed. It follows a darker story than most Hong Kong films from the late 70's and early 80's with the main character killing every criminal he's sent to find without remorse. The most interesting scene is a battle and chase that takes place almost entirely in the dark. It's very difficult to see and I wonder if it was a bold decision by the film team or merely the product of a low budget and no lighting. However it is realistic in it's pitch black chaos. Altogether this film suffers from some confusing developments (such as the constable not feeling any effects from a certain dart), and weak characterizations. Not my first choice when it comes to swordplay movies.
