Non stop carnage
30 January 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Japanese have taken over China (well, this part of China at least) and are throwing their weight about the place, making the locals none too happy (except for the locals who side with them). It's up to our hero and his female sidekick and their teacher, and some other guys (one of which is a young man in an old man mask - don't ask) to sort them out.

However, the Japenese ain't daft and set up a fighting tournament so that their best guys can waste any good fighters in town, therefore eliminating any threats to them. So you get kung fu versus karate, sumo and judo, which isn't something you encounter often in martial arse films.

There's not much story but plenty of fighting, and a good few mega-massacres to keep you going. Our hero is also a bit handy with a sword so that gets the bodies piling right up too. Very violent, even for a kung fu film.

There's never a dull minute in this one and it was a nice surprise for me to pull a film out at random and have it turn out to be this good.
