Why do drunks in film spill more booze than they drink?
13 February 2000 | by (Las Vegas) – See all my reviews

Likeable characters make you want to enjoy the film, but the script and costumes makes it difficult. They have some decent fight scenes until the armies of Europe and the U.S. appear. The sight of occupation troops would be enough for anyone to fall off the wagon.....especially the drunken tiger.

Cheong San is opposed to the Ching Dynasty and most of the movie centers on him and his betrothed battling with government officials. For me the film took a dive once the officials fled and Cheong San and his followers were left to face the occupation troops.

I also didn't know that the military forces in 1898 were so skilled in kung-fu. Like often happens in HK films....overkill sets in. This must be a series as the DVD case tells us to collect all three and the ending would indicate a continuation.

It wasn't that bad of a B-movie.....just as long as you don't expect more.
