enjoyable early hong kong action
25 September 2000 | by joshmertzSee all my reviews

This early hong kong flick is an enjoyable lark. While the fights and effects are sometimes laughably primitive by today's standards, they are nonetheless well-choreographed. The story is pretty intriguing, the intentional humor hits the mark, and, the acting is actually surprisingly competent for the genre, which can tend to be hokey and melodramatic.

All in all, worth seeing for fans of Bruce Lee, John Woo, and "The Matrix," all of whom are obviously influenced by movies such as this.
