The star of this film was evidently meant to be Yuan Mao (playing the famous Chinese hero Fok Yuen Gap the founder of Ching Wu) but modern covers feature Hwang Jang Lee who plays a Japanese Bushido master who has no respect for Chinese kung fu and beats up any Chinese fighters he can find. And of course he is the only real reason to watch this. Yuan Mao is athletic but lacks any real charisma. His father (Kwan Yung Moon) hardly looks older than him and Tino Wong is not at his best here. The young girl (Yuen Chu = YuenGuk) is pretty good and athletic. A cameo by Lee Chun Hwa (who often played Bolo Young type parts) is fun. The end fight is 2 on 1 against Hwang and goes on for some time. Unfortunately right until the end Hwang looks much more likely to win than father and son playing tag team. The rest of the actors are stock characters. Only for real fans of Hwang Jang Lee - who does do some good kicking.

The Producer / Director is given on the film as Lo Chin Po (= John Law Ma ?).
