So pedestrian!
12 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The people involved in this movie didn't listen to Bruce Lee when he said that kung fu action should have emotional content -- not necessarily anger, but something other than a full body dance.

I agree with the earlier comment that the dubbing in this flick is weird -- very slow to keep pace with the original Chinese word flow -- and again, there's not much sign of emotional content.

The photography is nothing special either. This was a very low budget venture, possibly filmed in Macao to judge by the look of the seaside fortifications the two men fight around. There are only ultra-inexpensive special effects, and no attempts to backfill light on the actors when there's no sun on their faces and bright sky behind them. As a result, there's a surprising amount of daytime action that is hardly visible. Camera lenses can only do so much. The producers didn't seem to care, either.

I know this goes against the traditions of the genre, but after 15 or 20 minutes of constant fighting, complete with high kicks, jumps, throws, and so on, shouldn't somebody appear to be out of breath? There are no concessions to reality here.

Still, it's nice to see Shih Kien as a vigorous man in (I'd guess) his late 40's, still being able to handle the demands of the kung fu action.

Bottom line -- don't waste your time or money buying or renting this movie, but if it plays on cable and you don't have anything better to do, it won't hurt to watch it.
