Fans of the genre will really like it
22 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Only a fan of this genre would watch this movie nowadays and only a fan will ever read this review. Today films like this need to be rated according to fan expectation and what else was being produced at the time of release. For a martial arts film fan having a festival of 1972 films this one ranks a solid 7 out of 10. We all know its all about the fights. We all know the fights get better as the movie progresses because they were usually filmed in script order and the actors and stunt men got better at working together. In case you don't know that then just disregard the first few fights and enjoy the rest. What I particularly liked was the way the Japanese fought "dirty" and the Chinese countered those attacks effectively and only responded with lethal force when provoked into it. Kudos to Chan Sing for another of his great villain roles. I bought the DVD to see Kuan Tai Chen actually and this film was before he became a star at Shaw Brothers.
