Amazing - an Excellent Movie, with No Deaths!
26 February 2000 | by wayne-williamsSee all my reviews

Credit must certainly be given to Run Run Shaw, Chang Cheh et al for producing such a classic movie which thrills the viewer from start to finish, and without anyone being killed. The true story behind this film is an understanding of the way the martial artist should conduct himself.
