I'm pretty sure I own this movie..
5 July 1999 | by U.X.See all my reviews

It sounds about right. I picked it up at a small music store for about 3 dollars, the copy I got was very crappy and had bad, bad tracking, but was watchable once. If you're looking for a thorough review, than.. no. Sorry. But, if you're into no effort reviews, then read on. Bloody Fists is one of those kung fu films set in that indeterminate kung fu era, the one that mixes old style costumes with things like soldiers and big guns.. you're never quite sure just when it's happening, but I guess it really doesn't matter. Looks like some guy who likes to comb his hair and grin wicked is on the run from some troops, he did something bad. I don't know. Then there's this other guy, his girlfriend is Norma Miao (I think?) from Fists of Fury, he's knocking around wooden dummies on the beach. Chen Seng shows that his Japanese martial arts is the best, to the dismay of the Chinese fighters. Always with the Japanese.. and somehow, a dragon herb gets thrown in there, it's apparently valuable like marijuana, but just how it's used is never clearly established. There's a tournament, some baddie with long hair and a black surgical mask is running the show, even though the big, big guy with the huge, sexy eyebrows really should have been running things. Some guys fight in these wooden rings that look pretty neat.. Chen Seng and long-hair bad guy kidnaps some guys and ties them to stakes on the beach. Chen has some of them decapitated, because they won't tell him where the dragon herb is. Then the guy from the beginning, the guy with the wooden dummies, he comes around and kills all the bad guys, I forget how. Maybe by breaking their necks. That's usually how it works. You know, maybe I should watch it again.
