Point Blank meets Martial Arts (once more)
With music from "Shaft" and the typical "Point Blank" plot, this Hongkong movie comes along pretty cheap, but entertaining. I liked it after all. So if you are into martial arts films, you might like it too (even though I wouldn't spend money to see it).

The story is the typical "Point Blank" revenge story: At first, the protagonist starts off down the hierarchy, always climbing higher until the final duel against the top gangster boss comes. You can watch the original "Point Blank", the quasi-remake "Payback" with Mel Gibson, or the neo-noir thriller "The Limey", directed by Steven Soderbergh instead. (and I'm pretty sure, that there are plenty of other similar plotted films around) Or, if you like this kind of story, watch all of those movies...!

Anyway - another option is to watch the Shaw Brothers classic "Bao chou", which does not only tell the same story, but also in the same style: with martial arts fights and the Asian setting. But "Bao chou" is for sure much better from a cinematic point of view and shows much more blood flowing; directed by legendary Shaw Brothers director Chang Cheh, it is also quite entertaining.

But maybe "Wu Kung" is even more fun in its cheesiness - so if you are into trashy Asian movies and the typical 70's cinematography from most of the Charles Bronson flicks, you should check this out.
