Like no other, Mr. Silver Fox himself, Hwang Jang Lee, has done it again. With Philip Ko as the protagonist and Mr. Silver Fox with his usual villainous on screen presence. Basically, revenge is the motive in this octane action flick. Of course, I admit that the story is flat except for the simplicity of the plot.
-Someone has a missing dog
-Hwang Jang Lee plays a corrupt official who tries to gain power and territory
-Lee locks up one of Ko's family members for pure torture
-Ko handles his business like a man and beats down everyone affiliated with Lee
-Long climatic battle between hero and villain (y'all know which is which)
It is stated that Hwang Jang Lee choreographed the fight scenes. All I have to say is that I'm very impressed with this man's work. Whether he's acting, producing, or choreographing, he's one of the best at what he does. The action scenes throughout the movie were pretty good. Philip Ko puts on a serious "kick a**" face when he's exploding on enemies. Lee does the same thing, but with more emphasis on legs. Both are brutal and hard-to-the-core. Remember though, there is no character development or emphasis on plot. Who cares!! The producers and the director of this film knew what they were doing. Wicked martial arts action is what I crave, and Hwang Jang Lee along with Philip Ko are just the ones to deliver it.
The last fight scene, in my opinion, should go down in cinematic martial arts history. As an avid viewer and aficionado of HK cinema, I would expect a board or big review of this movie. The reviewer before me is right though. Buy the movie for action only. You won't regret it. There is a second movie on the DVD version. The DVD version is a double feature. It is called Goose Boxer. Philip Ko is the villain. Not a very good edition to the DVD. Stick with TIGER OVER WALL!!
Final Judgement: ***1/2/****
