| Watch carefully; the story is in the details
An ill-gotten treasure brings out the worst in almost everyone in this complicated tale of swirling alliances, ulterior motives and betrayal. Lots of action -- inventive weaponry and some interesting matches. Just about every star from the Venoms-era Shaw Bros. studio appears in this picture somewhere, so it's alright to watch it a couple of times to make sure you've got it all.
