Martial arts, action, comedy, and even a little sex tossed in.

Sonny Chiba plays his usual "fighter from hell" role here. No real surprises there. But the quick-hit scenes they toss in were more fun than you think.

Japanese nuns? And when one fall over and her habit hike up to reveal her underwear, we hear one of her friends say "Oh the dishonor!" Or something like that.

It's a chase scene that stops for a rest occasionally. Just enough for a quick laugh before more of the usual cartoon like violence.

This was Japanese made, which for the time, was a bit rare.

And don't blink or you'll miss a badly dubbed Abdullah The Butcher making a cameo.
