the Yuen clan prepares for the future
11 February 2017 | by ckormos1See all my reviews

Master's last wish is to expel the Mongol invaders. Austin Wei is about to inherit the top spot when paperwork reveals he is a Mongol. He is off to uncle who raised him but finds uncle dead and he is blamed. Cut to General Chen Kuan-Tai who is in charge of the south to stop the Han rebels. The emperor is not happy with the results. Dragon Gang tries to assassinate the general.

Two things about this movie are noteworthy. This is Austin Wei's first starring role. It was also his last. He was amazing in this movie but it was 1982 and the genre sorely needed to be reimagined. Everything that could be done in a martial arts movie had been done to death. Yet, in the next few years it all would be reinvented by the likes of Jackie Chan and the Yuen clan just to mention the top two. That's where the second noteworthy thing comes in. There is a fight scene when Austin brings the injured girl back to the Dragon Gang. This fight scene is one of the most creative scenes ever filmed in Shaw Brothers. This scene was choreographed by Yuen Cheung-Yan and Austin fights Yuen Tak.

Overall I rate this above average and consider it a landmark movie for the genre.
