Entertaining remake of Sonny Chiba's SHOGUN'S SAMURAI
This is director/martial arts star Frankie Chan's unofficial remake of the Kinji Fukasaku film SHOGUN'S SAMURAI (1978). Instead of Japanese samurai in a period setting, we get modern day Chinese gangsters battling each other for the position left vacant after the mysterious death of their head honcho.
There's lots of well-choreographed kungfu and gunplay in this frenetically-paced flick, and Frankie Chan himself makes for a decent hero. On the downside, spectacular fighting femme Yukari Oshima has a rather minor role, and the story turns a bit ludicrous at times. Still, this is a solid piece of action film-making and probably Chan's best film next to the rollicking THE OUTLAW BROTHERS.
