| Interesting early look into Chinese Mafia
Although this film was made in 1919, don't let that fool you. There is plenty of action in this film that seems unbelievable for the time it took place (personal favorite: hatchet to one baddie's face).

There is a simple story here about a man involved with a Chinese Mafia-like organization and his attempt to remove himself from it when he falls in love with a young Chinese woman (played by a caucasian), the very daughter of the man he is assigned to kill. Great story progress, no real bumps, although the ending seems a bit contrived.
