Slower Tso Nam Lee, but sill an engaging good film
5 July 2005 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Policeman Meng Hu (Don Wang) gives up his job after being ridden with guilt for his partner being killed. He refuses to fight anymore, until a local opium dealer tries to strong arm his way into letting his shipments in the town. This is one of Director Tso Nam Lee slower movies action and story-wise, but don't let that dissuade you in the least.The fight scenes, while not as numerous, are still great. It's still pretty good stuff and can easily hold it's own against Tso's other great kung-fu films such as, "Hot, Cool and Vicious", "Shaolin Vs. Lama", "Exit the Dragon, Enter the Tiger" and "Fist of Fury 2"

My Grade: B

DVD Extras: Commentary by Hong Kong film expert, Ric Meyers, and martial artist Bobby Samuels; a promo for the Martial Arts Theater line; and Trailers for "Running out of Time", "Dragon Inn", "Armageddon" (the Chinese one); "the Duel", "Body Weapon", "Fist Power", & "Deadful Melody"
