If you came to see Jimmy Wang Yu - you will see him
It starts with a drug deal and murder then a guy and girl discuss the plot. People are snow skiing over the opening credits. Jimmy makes his entry by running down an armed robber. Then he goes to question a night club singer. He is a private investigator with a bunch of crummy cases to work on. He stumbles into a slightly interesting case.
Jimmy Wang Yu was one of the top stars of the old school martial arts movies. One of my favorites, I like to call him "The Madman of Martial Arts Movies" because of his insane fight scenes and over the top movies such as "Master of the Flying Guillotine". That movie was quite creative for its time but it also showed the limit of his creativity. The genre changed in the mid 1980s and was reborn by creative geniuses such as Jackie Chan and the Yuen clan. Jimmy had nothing to add in that direction.
In review, this is a run of the mill crime story with a few fights. My copy was a digital file, wide screen but small, and English dubbed by the A team of voice over actors. I can't recommend it to anyone other than Jimmy Wang Yu fans who want to see all of his movies good or bad.
