Pretty good '70s chop-socky melodrama
31 May 2012 | by (Alabama) – See all my reviews

Pretty good '70s chop-socky melodrama featuring the personable Barry Chan, otherwise known as Wei Tze-yung (actually credited here as Wai Tze-wen). Star of a number of independently-made kung fu flicks like "The Brave Lion" and "Mantis Combat", Chan had very respectable fighting and acting skills and should have become at least a modest success but, unfortunately, is not widely remembered today. In this film, he plays a virtuous kung fu student framed for the murder of a young woman (part of a larger criminal conspiracy to get his sifu out of the picture and take over the town), and there's no shortage of action as Chan simultaneously battles the bad guys and attempts to prove his innocence to the police. The fights are nicely choreographed by Lam Yue-chuen, and the thunderous, histrionic musical cues will warm the cockles of your heart if you grew up watching USA Network's "Kung Fu Theater". Six and a half stars.
