Storyline

In Hong Kong, a poor young man not bad at kung fu is taking a beating for a debt he can't pay to keep his ill mother, when a wealthy businessman sees him, and hires him as his new chauffeur. Fang Pao (Bruce Li) is delighted, since his uncle already worked for Mr. Chen as gardener, and a friend of his as the industrialist's bodyguard. Fang Pao is taken to the criminal police headquarters for questioning, while his boss is arrested and sentenced to death in Bangkok for drug smuggling. It's up to Fang Pao to unravel the mystery behind his boss's downfall before he is executed. Mr. Chen's second wife (Dana Tsen) looks more worried with what she may inherit from his death than in postponing it; Jimmy, his good friend, is actually Mrs. Chen's lover; the lawyer has a row with Mrs. Chen and seems to loose interest in the case. Eventually, Mr. King, the Bangkok's associate, comes in help of the jobless chauffeur, offering him a new position - but only to better bribe him out of his secret. The... Written by Artemis-9

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.
