Five friends are divided by a cruel kung fu warlord.
6 November 1998 | by traveler777xSee all my reviews

Four starving friends and their new friend are tricked by a madman into fighting each other. This movie has 3 major elements that any good kung fu movie must have: great cameraderie between the main heroes, awesome kung fu, and a great villain!
