Fun to see Bruce in action and the acrobatics of the others
26 January 2020 | by ckormos1See all my reviews

It starts with the Japanese army against the Chinese army. The Japanese are invading China and there are some plans that the Chinese need to get. The rest of the story is about spies and secret codes and anything else possible to involve getting these plans. It's pretty much all made up on the day of filming.

Bruce came along at the time the "studio system" of Shaw Brothers was coming to an end. (Though it never ended at Shaw Brothers.) Creative control was being given to actors. Jimmy Wang Yu was the initial driving force in this change and Bruce Lee contributed also. Bruce Leung, though a genius in martial arts choreography, really didn't have all that it takes for total creative control. He didn't even have much acting skills. Nevertheless, he did surround himself with other people capable of getting the job done. You will see many of the same actors and stunt men in his films.

For what this lacks in dialog, plot, consistency and acting, it is still a pleasure to watch for Bruce's martial arts and the martial arts and acrobatics of the other actors.
