Not a well known film but martial arts fans should get to know it
18 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

1977 Taiwan with Lo Lieh, Yueh Hua, Hsu Feng, Ma Ju-Lung, Woo Kei and Go Ming. The "first family" has risen to the top of the martial world and they do not tolerate evil. The three leads take out three gangs of evil then report home. Their master is about to take the golden chair as leader of the martial world but Yueh Hua notices it is trapped. It seems some people are against the first family, though the master continuously denies he has ever offended anyone. More attacks go against them and it is suspected there must be a spy. Also, the poison guy is not the mastermind, there is also a man wearing a mask. Lo Lieh is falsely accused and flees to find the real killer. He is trapped by the man wearing the mask. There are a few more plot twists to untangle before the final fight. Thankfully, it all makes sense at the end. Lo Lieh goes down as the true hero of the movie. I highly recommend this film for fans of the genre. I must stress – for fans of the genre – and rate it a solid seven out of ten well-above average. This is not a well-known movie even among fans but it is available on the Rarescope DVD label. The copy is wide-screen, subtitled and though not a frame by frame restoration the color and resolution are good enough to watch on a modern television. If you have not even watched "The Seven Samurai" and cannot tell Sammo Hung from some other anonymous stuntman, then you might want to cut your teeth on some other more well-known martial arts movies first just to see if this sort of film is for you.
