This movie has one of the best introductions of any film I have ever seen. The introduction shows a woman demonstrating several weapons of Kung Fu while sinister music plays. By demonstrating, I mean killing several men with these deadly weapons of Kung Fu! This movie has great style and creativity throughout. The story line is actually good, but might take several viewings to really understand what is going on.
Like others have said, it is not really a serious martial arts film, but it is one of my favorites nonetheless. You cannot beat the sinister music/introduction sequence in the beginning of the movie. That is worth watching alone. If you are a fan of Chinese Super Ninja, you will also like this movie.
