A typical 70s kung fu movie for the most part
9 March 2013 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

From my above summary line, you may have concluded that I do not like Hong Kong/Taiwanese kung fu movies. Actually, I really enjoy these movies... at least those made from the mid-1980s on. Efforts made in the 70s for the most part I must admit do not move me, including this one. It is a little better than average, thanks to not only some good looking sets and costumes, but also some skillful camera work and visual composition. But apart from that stuff, I was bored for the most part. The scenes involving kung fu are indistinguishable from the dreary kung fu you usually get in a 70s movie. The story is thin and curiously keeps the movie's heroine off of the screen for large chunks of time. You won't be missing much if you skip seeing this movie, and I can only recommend it for die hard fans of Angela Mao - and even they will find much of the movie dreary and boring.
