reasonably enjoyable Hong Kong schlock
3 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

It's a Jackie Chan-ish martial arts movie with dangerous stunts, hair attacks, and peculiar meditations (among other things). The movie is sly yet undemanding, but it's not very well made. Then again, we don't watch this kind of movie to see lavish sets or high acting talent.
