Nearly a real classic
14 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Made by a small independent company based in Hong Kong but the countryside looks Taiwanese and the main villain (Pai Ying) was a leading Taiwanese character actor. Gathered around him are some truly strange henchmen including the giant Siu Gam with a giant golden club and the very odd 'Wolf Man'. The rather eponymous hero (Barry Wai) and his troupe of young students (why does one have sticking plasters on his head ? is there some significance in this) fight well with the Butcher (Sit Hon) and his niece (the pretty Nancy Yen) and the final fights are spectacular even with a slightly odd King Hu like ending. The story itself is confusing at times with crosses and double crosses, not helped by several strange edit jumps at least on my Warner's edition. Money was obviously spent on costumes and sets and some of the scenery is wonderful, well caught by cinematographer Yue Wu. Actuion direction was by Ho Wai-hung who seems happier with weapons than open fist techniques but it all works pretty well. This looks like it could have been an absolute classic if made by say Chang Cheh at Shaws but slightly misses the mark but is worth watching and was a brave attempt at trying to make a big film.
