Richard Loo as a tong villain
26 July 2010 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

The first episode to touch upon the tongs, which, as revealed by Master Po (Keye Luke), have existed for hundreds of years, from humble beginnings against tyranny to bloody rule by way of fear. Here we have the Dragon of Retribution Tong, when Chen (Richard Loo) demands the return of his child servant Wing (Carey Wong), who has escaped to the safety of Sister Richardson (Diana Douglas), preaching Christianity as the boy's savior. Caine intercedes on their behalf, and Chen becomes fearful at the knowledge of Caine's Shaolin past. After he and his henchmen fail to kill the priest, the Tong leader, Li Ho Sing (Tad Horino), demands the price of Wing's freedom to be paid in blood. Diana Douglas was the former wife of actor Kirk Douglas, as well as the mother of Michael Douglas. Of the 5 episodes in which Richard Loo appears, plus the original pilot, this is the sole entry in which the veteran character actor actually plays a villain, but he disappears after his murderous hatchet is knocked away by the resourceful and vigilant Caine. Most amusing is a sequence in which Caine, by way of candlelight, portrays a stonecutter, a horserider, the sun, and a cloud, asking young Wing which one he wants to be.
