Something missing in the translation but still above average
18 August 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie opens on a slave boat. Our hero character played by Yu Rong- Guang thought he was on a boat with traders but actually is on board with pirates. (I've made that mistake myself , written in "sarcasm" font.) Cut to a festival. The village is attacked. Ji Chun-Hua (former leader of the White Lotus Clan in another good movie) plays the pirate leader. Our hero saves one of the children. The villagers retreat to a fortified city. Yu Rong-Guang gains entrance by pretending to be insane. He ends up holed up in a cave and brought food by the little girl.

A subplot develops involving mixing kung fu styles and marriage. Our hero has come to China to learn "Dog Fist Style" as shown in a flashback. In Japan he was defeated by a white guy and was about to commit suicide because of loss of honor. A monk intervenes and convinces him to go to China to learn Dog Fist style. This is also Cynthia Khan's style.

The action is top notch. Wires are used unobtrusively and the fighting is realistic. Also some of the scenes involve language misunderstandings and mispronunciations that will never be appreciated by the English language viewer. My copy is both subtitled and dubbed in English but still misses the Chinese/Japanese language humor.

I rate it above average for the year and genre and recommend it for fans.
