I feel more like an archaeologist examining the remains of an ancient city rather than a movie reviewer. Only a VHS pan and scan with English dubbing converted to a digital file is left of this original film creation. That means as much as a third of the movie is missing from the sides and the dialog is at best 60% correct in the translation. Also the resolution only captures about 20% of the original film quality. Realistically the only person watching this movie almost 40 years after it was filmed would be a hard core Sammo Hung fan looking to view every movie the man ever made. I am one of those people. My review has little to add to the obvious. Dean ,Carter, and Sammo collaborated to make some of the best movies of the genre but this is not one of those. Why? I think mostly because the filthy head gag is funny at most two or three times and cannot possibly make up for the otherwise lack of comedy. Outside of that not every movie can be your best. This is simply slightly below average stuff when compared to everything else released in a very prolific year for martial arts movies.
