Fairly good martial arts action and enough to entertain - Interesting Cast !
18 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

I first saw this film about 25 years ago at the movies and then on video about 6 years ago. There is a good cast here in this movie and thats its saving grace. Well actually one of the saving graces. Pretty good action here , even though there is a bit much of the stick fighting ! A passable story line too. Its set in the Philippines when ruled by Spain.

Roland Dantes a former Mr Philippines plays the hero's part and the wonderful Gilbert Roland plays his father. Nancy Kwan his mother. Alejandro Rey plays a very nasty role as the Spanish Governor here and Dean Stockwell is bad guy too.

Two of the most memorable things about this movie are the credits that seem to keep popping up for quite a while. The other is the perverted type of person Alejandro Rey becomes as a result of a pretty nasty event.

The hero will have to battle against the governors son who is now being tutored by a Japanese Samurai. To be able to do this there are some tests that he must first accomplish as well as learning to do things in a totally different way, Its not all as text book as other martial arts films though.

There are a few silly scenes in this film but the rest of it is pretty good. Don't worry too much about things that don't add up , just enjoy it.

Roland Dantes .. Nancy Kwan .. Guy Madison .. Alejandro Rey .. Gilbert Roland Dean Stockwell
