Good enough but with a false start
13 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

It starts with the Hong Kong police chase down a criminal and a good chase it was. Sammo plays the tuba at an awards ceremony. The story really starts when David Chiang is killed and reappears as a ghost to Sammo. The problem is what was all that filler material at the beginning that had nothing to do with the story? The first half really went nowhere. The good stuff was the scenes with Chang Yi and Hwang Jang Lee. Those fights could have been twice as long. My copy is a DVD but the original material was a laser disk. This copy took me years to find. It is one of the hardest to find of Sammo Hung's movies. Overall just average for Sammo but any Sammo movie is above average.
