Unfortunate title for your average martial arts movie
10 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

Our hero is an expert fighter and fisherman. His wife dies in childbirth. He can make big money as the bouncer at the brothel or casino but he has an agenda against those people. When he meets one of them he says "You owe me (fill in a body part) and they fight to the death. The money problems get worse when the child needs to go to the hospital and his buddy gambles away their last dollar.

The movie gets a little weird when Chiang Nan, on a losing streak, stabs himself in the leg and asks for $2. The casino boss comes out and gives him his $2 in losses back and has him leave to avoid a scene. Somehow this concept of associating gambling loss to self injury escalates to the point of the hero dumping a bag of heads out on the game table. I didn't get it.

Bruce Leung Siu-Lung is the action director. The fights are frequent and good. It's all standard stuff, well choreographed and executed with focus and power. There is just nothing special or memorable. Overall I rate it average for the year and genre.
