Martial arts by-the-numbers
11 February 2016 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

Set during World War II in Japanese occupied China, a group of resistance fighters hit back at the invading oppressors and their Chinese collaborators.

This is another in the long line of martial arts action movies that came out of south-east Asia in the 70's. There is nothing truthfully especially good about this one and it follows the well-worn formula of good guys against evil rulers. If there was one angle that this one had that was a little distinctive though, it is the fact that it features a fighting competition which is set up by the Japanese with nefarious motives in mind, where various characters combat each other using different martial arts styles. To that end we have judo, karate, sumo and kung-fu all used against each other. Look out too for another common feature of this sub-genre where we have bits of famous music from big American films simply spliced into the flow. In this case it was the remarkably unsuitable pioneering synth music from A Clockwork Orange (1971) that finds itself scoring a bit of the action.
