solid well-made action thriller
25 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

ej's kung-fu capsule review for films of the chop-socky old-school -

1. basic plot - Drug smuggling gang infiltrates a crew of dock workers; when one worker finds out they kill him. A murder investigation follows; with the help of an addicted young woman trying to go straight, all the dirt is revealed - then it's time for the Chinese tiger to clean up!

2. plot construction - Very strong, really pulls us along; still allows for more complex characters than is typical for this genre in this era, but provides plenty of time for fighting.

3. dramatic - Surprisingly effective.

4. funny - Thanks to a comic sidekick who knows his job.

5. dialog - Strong and pretty realistic.

6. cast performance - Excellent all the way around.

7. crew performance - Solidly professional craftsmanship.

8. amount of fighting - Plenty.

9. quality of fighting - Excellent.

10. special any cast or crew notes - Star Chin-kun Li had an odd career, phasing in an out of popularity, which I think unfortunate; he is both a good actor and an excellent fighter. This is definitely his magnum opus performance. This film, so little noted, happens to be a real classic of the genre from this era - surprisingly realistic, well-written, well-directed; well-performed, and just overall well-made.

11. big positive - Just a solid well-rounded action thriller.

12. big negative - Existing English print available done in the usual annoying pan-and-scan.

bottom-line - who should see this movie - Action film fans; kung fu fans; fans of early-1970s mystery-thrillers.
