| A feast with an empty feeling at the end
Carries sure does come naked, on multiple occasions and even in the snow. Chan Sing is the bad guy again. I love the movies where he starts out likable but then turns into the bad guy. Initially he will have that likable grin. Then he gets a bad idea in his head and the likable grin gets a bit twisted but still likable. Then he makes his first mistake and that likable grin becomes a bit suspicious, then unlikeable, then step by step all the way to pure evil.

The movie starts out as a drama with a few fights. Warning to animal lovers – there are some harsh scenes. These would have been scenes of everyday life in that place at that time too. I'm glad I didn't live there and then but I would not have known the difference. Anyway it deteriorates from drama to psychodrama. That was the wrong road to take. Worse, it never would have worked to try to trick a killer that the victim was still alive. When Chan Sing paid off the monk that would have been proof of guilt but the writer chose another road and like I said, it did not work.

This is a movie with yummy parts but it leaves you feeling empty at the end. For fans of martial arts movies during the golden age from 1967 to 1984 this movie is one you need to watch because of the actors, the studio, and the action director. You will likely not watch it again but you will enjoy not having to keep pressing fast forward.
