Karate cop
26 September 2019 | by liodavixSee all my reviews

The well-known Chinese director Lo wei, director of several films with Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan among others, directed this film, produced by Raymond Chow and his mythical Golden Harvest, in fact it was his first production shot in the United States.

The film is very little thing, it has that look and style of the seventies, which gives it a nostalgic and charming, but its plot, protagonist, characters, and most importantly, the pelas, are very discreet and uninteresting.

In addition, Norris is not even the protagonist, but the villain, and comes out few times, with a final skin that leaves you rather cold, nor is it all bad bad or very good, so that we understand each other.

However, it can be an interesting film to observe how the first martial arts productions were made in the West, but otherwise, it is completely forgettable and mediocre.

Thank you.
