A mediocre martial arts movie with a good ending
17 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

A veteran policeman and young rookie team up to fight a criminal gang who wear distinctive all white clobber.

This Hong Kong kung fu flick is pretty typical of dozens of similar movies churned out from South East Asia at the time. It has a forgettable story, horrendous dubbing and ropey comedy. In other words, it's all about the copious amounts of martial arts combat that plays out relentlessly from start to finish. In all honesty I find these non-stop fight films a little tiring after a while and this one was no different. But it did manage to redeem itself somewhat by the end where we are treated to a grand finale which is a confrontation between the hero and chief villain. It's a decidedly violent final encounter with lots of blood and brutality. It stays in the memory, which is more than can honestly be said for the rest of the movie. Once this fight reaches its bloody conclusion the movie just…stops. It's a good ending to a mediocre film.
