J. Kuo's Best
14 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As stated by other Commentors this is a Stand-out in the Kung-Fu Movie Genre. Jack Long and Lee Yi Min do a wonderful job with the fighting style and choreography set before them . When you watch Long are Lee you see two gentlemen who practice good form , something not recognizable by many actors in this period. If you like this movie the "long brothers" and "Lee Yi min " team up with Joeseph Kuo in "Mystery of Chess Boxing " another classic . Mark and Jack Long entered the Hong Kong movie scene much too late. They both Started in Movies during the latter 70's and became stars in the eighties;subsequently, that was the early age of wire-fu which took away from the natural abilities of the acrobats and actors . Sad thing it was also the death of Kung Fu movies in the Americas.....
