| Pretty rubbish apart from the man Tan
I bought this title purely for the cover art (which looked cool) and the man Tan Tao Liang, one of the best kickers in kung fu movies. It can be a game of chance with these budget price flicks, as Im sure many of you have found. Sometimes a classic will be uncovered, other times a total dud. This movie is one of the latter. In terms of plot I cant even remember the outline (It was that memorable) something to do with a lethal killer wearing cool straw hat headgear. Tan is his friend, and adds a small shade of class to the proceedings. However the fights are some of the most poorly choreographed I have seen in a seventies kung fu film, with lazy angles and low impact choreography. One scene also tries to emulate the Exorcist with subliminal images and a flying skull. This is actually the unintentionally hilarious highlight of the film. One to avoid
