| Some good fights but the story dragged
It opens with horsemen ride into town at night. Pai Ying oversees the murder, rape, robbery, and arson. The good people discuss with Tsai Hung what to do. Though hired as security he becomes falsely arrested. Cut to David Chiang arrives in town. He is a quite popular pickpocket though popularity seems contradictory to a successful pickpocket career. He soon ends up in jail with Tsai Hung.

My copy is a video CD that I bought in China Town in Los Angeles back in 2015. I just recently got around to watching it as I have been busy watching and reviewing hundreds of other movies.

This story has a simple plot and story. It could all be set up with just a few scenes and everything could play out in about thirty minutes. Instead it just dragged on far too long. The fights were limited by the plot and characters. David Chiang is a pickpocket with no kung fu. All the fights involving him are simply beatings. I often complain about such fights in movies. I find no entertainment value in watching one character who cannot defend himself just getting beaten up. Other than that, the other fights are certainly good.

I rate this movie as just average for the year and genre and I'm feeling generous.
