Routine Kung-Fu Revenge Tale
7 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

Routine but enjoyable martial arts story of revenge. A Chinese man's father is killed by occupying Japanese forces. The young man then trains (cue training sequences) and then avenges his father's murder (cue Chinese vs. Japanese sequences). It's nothing you haven't seen before, but it's well mounted if nothing spectacular.
