Fast paced kung fu action
27 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

For a seventies/eighties era kung fu film, its good. It has interesting costumes, weapons, and action. It is the best Shaw Bros. film I have seen so far. This film is jammed packed with fights and never has a dull moment. The only thing bad about it is some moments where the wirework was unbelievable.
