Weakest of the Wang Yu/Mao Ying/Lazenby bunch!
I have to say – I'm not a fan of this Golden Harvest classic!
Don't get me wrong, it's watchable if you're a fan of the Wang Yu/Angela Mao flicks, but unfortunately this one suffers terribly from a severe lack of action.
I bought in all my Wang Yu/Angela Mao/George Lazenby team up movies at the same time, and A Queens Ransom has to be the weakest of the bunch.
Not such a bad thing considering what they have given us on top of this.
But how clever of the studios to use Lazenby as an IRA man out to kill the Queen! You gotta love it! I mean, the troubles here (in Belfast) had only just kicked off, but yet these guys thought it would be interesting to put the political hatred into a kung fu movie.
Could it possibly be the first kung fu movie about the Northern Irish troubles?
I think so
And then came mine!
