Literally Everyone Was Kung Fu Fighting
21 April 2014 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

"Miss Tien, thank you for saving me." "Forget it. I just didn't want somebody else to kill you!"

This film was directed by Huang Feng (who made 18 films in the 1970s alone), and stars Angela Mao. Not sure if Mao is well known outside of martial arts circles (probably not), but she probably should be -- why let Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee get all the credit?

Although I know very little about the martial arts film genre, I feel like this might be one worth seeing. If for no other reason than the fact that literally everyone is kung fu fighting -- there are hardly any scenes without a dozen guys trying to defeat Lady Whirlwind (and losing).
