So-So, for Hong Kong Kung Fu flick
The movie mix the romance and kung-fu, and our hero had to fight the evil guys who always had power, like in most kung-fu flicks, and of course, our hero finally saves the day.

Do not expect this martial arts flick is in the same category of that of Shao Lin Tzu, made one year earlier, with cooperation with China, because unlike Shao Lin Tzu, this martial arts flick is mostly filmed in Hong Kong, where land is expensive, so you cannot expect the real grand scale of scenery like in Shao Lin Tzu, but if the film makers can afford to have the high rental price for the land and that of the special effect, then they should be afford to film in China where everything was cheaper (and still is), and everything was real.
