He also enlists the expert help of a young kung fu student who now lives in Japan. Sparks begin to fly between the two, until reality sets in: the ad exec already has a girlfriend, and they have a competition to think about. Written by
This is a bad film that had potential. like many HK productions, internal logic is thrown to the wind whenever the mood comes along. Ekin manages to keep his dignity and Miriam Yeung has no acting talent, but gets by on sheer presence.
The story is a simple one involving crossed romantic communications and a rather strange martial arts competition that in it's final scenes could have saved the film on some level, but, the action is interrupted so many times by clumsy comedy bits, even this element is ruined.
As usual, westerners come off poorly in these films, but, I was shocked to see the American representative in the tournament, Spencer, an African-American, referred to with a racial slur, at least in my subtitled copy.
