| Below average attempt to link a few fights together with little or no story
This movie is not for the amateur viewers. You have to be hard core to sit through ninety minutes of this stuff. I recommend watching 500 martial arts movies from the bottom of the barrel of Ocean Shores VHS presentations. This will ruin your eyes by cutting of 25% of the picture and lowering the resolution to where you need glasses. Then numb up your ears by listening to three idiots trying to do different voices for thirty different characters. Numb up the brain with incoherent, inconsistent, or nonexistent story lines that serve only as a path from one fight to the next fight that looks exactly like the last fight. Chen Kuan-Tai was one of the great ones from the golden age of martial arts movies. He made some of the greatest and this movie was not one of them. Only if you are a fan and need to see everything he ever put on film then sit down and enjoy this stinker. Otherwise, nothing to see here, citizen, keep moving.
