Rich man's son returns to peaceful village and wreaks havoc.
A rich but very kind man dies and his spoiled son returns to his village to take over his property. Egged on by his cold hearted and promiscuous girl friend he abuses his father's former neighbors and tenants and tries to force the local hero to sell him his fish pond. Since the young man makes his living from the pond he refuses and so the rich son first sends his goons to force the issue through their martial arts and finally poisons the pond and kills all the fish, as well as kidnapping the hero's girl friend and holding her hostage. This leads to the final showdown when the hero goes to confront the bad guy at his home only to be met by an army of hired fighters. After defeating them he has to face two special hired assassins (the only non-Chinese actors in the film) before finally taking on the villain himself. After beating the bad guy and freeing the girl the hero turns away without killing him out of respect for his late father only to have the man pull a knife and try to stab him in the back. Plenty of kung fu action here all honestly shown with no trick photography or wire action. Although the name Eddie Hodges appears in the credits it belongs to an African-American actor and not the former child star.
