Beware that if you are buying this because you think that Gordon Liu is the star, he only makes a cameo apperance for about a minute.
The subtitles on the region one dvd are of poor quality which only adds to the confusion of the movie itself. Despite these minor flaws, this movie has some great sword fights that are cut together as better than most of these movies. The action is great and it's well worth watching. This is a classic action packed movie with a touch of comedy.
