Alternate Versions

The U.S Anchor Bay DVD featured the UK cinema print which was cut to remove a hook impaling and a man being shot and spitting blood during the dock fight. The German CMV Laservision disc is the fully uncut print. See more »

User Reviews

Whitman, Stuart Whitman
22 November 2005 | by inspectors71See all my reviews

I have almost no memory of this film, yet I'm writing a review. Go figure!

I seem to remember Stuart Whitman as some sort of hit-man in Hong Kong. It was entertaining and badly dubbed and fairly gory; the sort of movie HBO used to fill up their schedule with when they weren't showing more traditional features and before they went off the air at midnight.

My suggestion is to read the ten other reviews and, if this long-lost and forgettable Kung Fu/Spy flick piques your interest, rent it or buy a used copy.

Enjoy!
