A contender for one of the worst
17 November 2016 | by ckormos1See all my reviews

Dragon Lee walks through a desolate landscape, minding his own business, and meets a man who has a problem with that so they fight. It is explained that a higher up has ordered Dragon Lee never to return yet he returns. We cut to a tea house and a thug leaves without paying. Cut again back to the higher up. This time he has a problem with a list of names. (Why do people keep making these lists?) Then he adds on about Dragon Lee as if he never said it a few minutes earlier. It's back to the tea house. The guy who ate them out of pork and did not pay is hungry again. There is more talk as we meet Dragon Lee's future bride and the idiot who wrote the list of names. Everything we already know about the story is repeated in this dialog – just in case we missed it.

Dragon Lee made many movies I cannot find including 1976 "Superfist", 1977 "The Magnificent Duo", 1977 "The Last Fist of Fury" (which I do not want), 1978 "The Dragon on Fire", and 1978 "Enter the Deadly Dragon". I have seen him in 1978 "The Magnificent" but it was a minor role. His first movie I reviewed was 1978 "Dragon Lee vs the 5 Brothers" and I rated it average for the year and genre. Dragon Lee was certainly a capable fighter but there were thousands of other capable fighters who never got on film.

The only thing that could have saved this movie would have been excellent fight sequences with Dragon Lee. Many of the fights were poorly choreographed, like the fight against all the women, so he had no chance there. The fairly well choreographed fights were against substandard stunt men or actors with fighting ability. There were also bits of humor tossed in and they just felt out of place and failed to be funny.

The mess that is left is one of those movies you watch to laugh at. I don't care for those movies so my rating is based on the standards of a real martial arts movie and that makes this one way below average. I will say the movie did have one moment - the fire breathing fighter was something memorable. Overall, I can only recommend it for die hard fans of the genre just to watch once so you can mark it off your list and never watch again.
