After a gang of Manchu killers murder John Liu's fiancée and terrorize everyone in search of the Ming dynasty list of rebels, Liu and Angela Mao team up to fight the Manchus side by side in this rarely seen old school classic.
Not so great
Yet another Angela Mao old-school kung fu flick that is beneath her (and everybody else's) considerable talents. The "plot" is an ungodly mess – all I could make out is that there is this list of rebels and everyone's looking for it, and is prepared to betray / kill anyone to get it. I think Angela is on the rebels' side, yet one of her friends / co-fighters seems to be on the government's side! Anyway, when the film focuses on its plot, it only manages to be unwatchably boring. And despite the obvious martial arts skills of the participants, the fight scenes are generally unremarkable. The best one is probably the last, when John Liu and Angela Mao unleash a double attack of consecutive kicks on the final bad boss. Angela looks very beautiful in this film; I wish I could say the same about the DVD print! *1/2 out of 4.
