1973 A Tooth for a Tooth or Japanese Connection with Nick Cheung Lik, Queenie Kong Hoh-Yan, Suen Lam, and Ha Man

It opens with our hero working out alone. Queenie wants to learn kung fu but she is just a girl. Old partners in crime return and take her hostage, They demand that Nick join them for a robbery. The plan is to rob a rich crook to help the poor. Abrupt cut to the crime boss's two body guards are fighting each other. While the Japanese boss gets close to one of the hottest chicks ever in these movies, our guy steals the loot and a piece of paper. One of our gang is captured. Japanese boss just wants the paper – an opium contract. He makes the captured guy an offer. The other guy takes the loot and double crosses Nick. Nick kills the captured guy who was released as a traitor. The gang fights Nick and some cop comes along out of nowhere to help. The guy with the loot is captured but the boss just gives him the loot for help in killing Nick.

As you can see, alliances change as often as the fights. You won't be fast forwarding here as there is never a dull moment. The fights are for any reason at all if a few minutes have passed since the last one.

Suen Lam provides the totally over-acted comedic relief as the horny assistant to the boss.

There is no star power here, no big names but if you are a fan you will recognize all of these stunt men. These guys tried really hard to make a legitimate martial arts movie. Even in 1973 the bar for these movies was set so high all I can generously rate this movie at is average. Only hard core fans like me can even appreciate the effort, and I do. Thanks guys, I think I will watch another!
