| Fair attempt at action and a coherent story line
It starts with a rape as an attention grabber with a nice pair of boobs revealed. Lisa comes to the rescue and uses the forbidden "dragon blow" to kill the would-be rapist. Charlie Chin, senior student of the Dragon Blow school disapproves. Lisa disapproves of his disapproval. She goes on to save a young girl from kidnappers and is on a mission to find her parents. The bad guys still want to get the little girl. The adventure continues.

Looking at the talent we have the same story three times over. Lisa, Charlie, and Woo Gam have been around making martial arts movies since the 1960s and we all know they are not martial artists. By 1973 authenticity and realism are expected in these movies. The stuntmen did their best to sell the moves but anyone who has seen a few of these movies will notice the actors martial arts has no power or focus, they are just hitting a mark and striking a pose. The movie is not a total flop and is watchable start to finish thanks to a simple coherent story line, good pacing, and passable fighting sequences.

It also has a short running time and some sequences end abruptly so I wonder if a few feet of film are missing.

Rating 5.5 but not for the action, for the fair attempt at action and a coherent story line.
