This movie should be classified in the Action category, and it is another joint project of Hong Kong-China. This martial arts flick ride on the success of the previous Hong Kong-China joint project Shao Lin Temple shot in 1979, starting with Jet Li, and it actually was not that bad, and in fact, better than most Hong Kong and Taiwan martial art flicks.
The reason of this movie is better in comparison to others was because like Shao Lin Temple shot earlier, Chinese martial arts athletes were used instead of professional actors, so that the fighting scenes were as real as it could get, while those Hong Kong and Taiwan flicks were full of fake moves because movie stars were used instead of the professional martial arts athletes.
The drawback is also obvious: since there was no famous movie stars in this movie, the public reaction was not as great, it was difficult to find professional martial arts athletes who were also movie stars but nonetheless, the movie deserves some great points.
