That's not just a title - it's the whole movie
17 June 2015 | by ckormos1See all my reviews

Jimmy Wang Yu changes his shirt seven times and has seven magnificent fights. I really didn't count and I would not say the fights were magnificent but he did change his shirt each time. I love Jimmy Wang Yu. In this movie he shows one of his best skills - the brawler. Put Jimmy up against a crowd of stunt men and he makes it look powerful and natural. Sometimes he takes it to the level of madness but not this time. This movie has the feel that it was made as a second thought. Jimmy was going on vacation to Kyoto and said - we might as well make a movie while we are there, it won't cost much more. Yet there are monumental moments in this movie. I've watched thousands of martial arts movies and this is the only one I can think of that has a fight in a bowling alley. The other moment is the fight in the abandoned building. This had to be one of the most dangerous fights ever filmed. It seems they scouted a location and it was an abandoned factory size building that was overgrown with about ten years of weeds. They did a fight on the second floor. It was a miracle the floor did not collapse as I'm sure there was little or no safety inspection first. Plus there was exposed rebar all over just waiting to impale a stuntman. Perhaps stunt men did get impaled, we will never know as that was the nature of the job. Since this was made in 1973 there is also the men's clothes. That was a time when a man could wear anything. James Tien appears as the character Golden Hair. He is spray tanned and wears a blonde wig. It all looks quite normal for the year when a white shirt and bright pink pants are added to the ensemble. Overall, unless you are a Jimmy Wang Yu completist, this movie is pretty dull and below average.
