| Yet not the worst
It begins with jungle drums and previews of fights behind the credits. An anonymous fight follows then cut to Nora in a night club. Thugs enter and destroy the set quickly. Cut to Bruce Leung is looking for a job then Larry Lee is found drunk on the floor of Nora's place. They hire him. What? He trashes the thugs place. Lo Lieh discusses a big drug shipment. Bruce seems to be an undercover cop but his cover is blown. Then he has a long boring talk with his mother. He goes out and has a fight. Back at Nora's place the gang is back and Larry is in charge. Nora gets to fight using nunchucks.

How could this movie be even more boring? Add a soccer match! Wait, worse than worse - they bring in the white stunt guys - the pot-bellied professional wrestling type stunt guys.

The VHS copy is from a good tape at least but it seems way too close up particularly in the fights. It is bad in every way possible. Yet not the worst.
