I found and watched a copy of this movie based only on the name Yuen Qiu. Fans of the genre should remember her fabulous role as the land lady in "Kung Fu Hustle". Her career began in the 1970s. She was one of the original "real deal" martial arts movie stars who had genuine martial arts skills first and foremost. In this movie she does an excellent staff fighting sequence at about 45 minutes. I did not see a stunt double used at all, even for the acrobatics. She is the real deal! Lau Ga-Yung is also the real deal, at least by family as he is related to the grandmaster of all martial arts movies – Lau Kar- Leung.
I rate this movie way above average and highly recommend it for all fans.
