Chopsocky with one of the best baddies
Yet another Snake in the Eagle's Shadow cash-in (but at least this one seems to have acquired quite a neat little cast), there are however very few redeeming features in this cheap kung fu quickie other than a delightfully evil Hwang Jang Lee and some nifty Hong Kong phooey near the end. Other than that, this typical tale of vengeance has little going for it. John Chang takes up the orphan do-gooder bumpkin type who's desperate to learn the arts but is ultimately disappointed in his choice of sifu: that is until beggar Fan Mei San saves the kid from some inept thuggies and summarily teaches him all he knows. Hwang enters the fray as an evil Eagle Claw assassin (surprise surprise) when he is hired to take out the two by the thuggie's stuttering boss. Fan is therefore slaughtered leaving our man Chang to go head-to-head with bootman Hwang in an extended duel to the death. It's not inspiring stuff, but I guess it makes do for a little idle entertainment to fill the hours.
