Standard kung fu fare, nicely presented
28 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Obviously extremely low budget and formulaic, this film nevertheless manages to be entertaining throughout. There's a lone hero, a wicked gang terrorising the village folk, a vow to the dying, and lots of inner conflict before good triumphs over evil.

Oddly, the soundtrack for the English dub exclusively uses the soundtracks to The Godfather, Once Upon a Time in the West as well as a couple of other Ennio Morricone works. I have a feeling they didn't ask Ennio's permission - not sure if the music has been used in the original version or just the later English dub.

It's a bit of fun, and will provide distraction for a couple of hours if you're in the mood for classic kitsch seventies kung fu.
