Average low budget martial arts movie for fans only
1978 Taiwan with Li Yi-Min, Tsai Hung, Wang Ping, Mau Ging-Shun and Suen Lam Starts with lion dance music then some Peking opera on stage. It cuts to Li Yin-Min and men fighting outside. He finishes up in time to go backstage and get ready for the opera. Some gangsters come backstage looking for him. There is a fight and he gets fired. He joins another group but gets in trouble because of his gambling. Up until now all the fights have been for no reason and they all look alike because there is no story behind them. Li Yi-Min beats up a guy and leaves him lying there, "I know you are not dead!" Then another guy comes along and does kill him. He is killing everyone involved with a certain master. Now there is at least the spark of a story. Tsai Hung plays the prosecutor. Li Yi-Min flees prosecution to find the real killer and bumps right into him. Of course they fight a few times before everything resolves. Overall this is an average low budget 1970s type martial arts movie with nothing to make it above average or below average.
