Needlessly over dramatic and a bit short on the action
30 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bruce Li is a chauffeur and is surprised to find his boss is arrested for drug dealing. That minor plot manages to really drag down the action sequences. Bruce gets to watch the bosses kid. Is there anything worse than a kid in a martial arts movie? Over and over again minor story issues seem more important to be repeated rather than just to move on. That's what the fast forward button is for. Bruce Li does a good job in the fights. He is fast, powerful, and pretty accurate. Kurata Yasuaki plays the same bad guy he has played in dozens of movies by now. The traditional final fight is well done. Overall I can't rate the movie any higher than plain old average.
