Chan Sing is out of prison and that means big trouble for someone
6 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Chan Sing has just broken out of prison and in these movies that means big trouble for somebody. It seems he has been double crossed over a treasure map. He kills the family but the son has the map. He tries every unbelievable trick in the book to get the map plus a few fights. Barry, the son, and his buddy and big fat servant follow the map to the alleged treasure. For no reason at all except to fill the movie run time they encounter a girl along the way. Feel free to fast forward through every scene with a girl as she has nothing to do with the story at all. The fights are really good. There is an attempt at mantis style in the fighting and in the title. Barry Chan does Tae Kwan Do and Chan Sing is a karate expert. Both did a pretty good job of faking a few mantis style moves though I don't see why that was needed. Overall, too long, with a strangely edited storyline but the movie had really good fights.
