Now nostalgic kung fu actioner.
15 December 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is a uniform in this edition costume action movie, which managed to gather together three of the cycle's major stars and the director of early Jackie Chan vehicles. No one could accuse it of being brilliant or innovative entertainment but the hand me down production values and pacing are good.

In movie mythical China, the First Family send the trio of heroes (including the always glamorous Hsu Feng, star of the King Hu masterpieces) sorting out bad hats. However back at base, a hooded visitor is working for the leader's overthrow, corrupting Yue Hwa and Lo Lieh with his slow acting poison.

Is that Sammo Hung briefly doing his Tibetan Chief Iron Hoops routine again in the inn?
