Intense Look at Vigilantism.
A champion level fighter who's basically overcome all the criminal threats in his area decides to use his skills to exact his own special brand of vigilante justice against those he blames for the death of his crippled trainer. His girl and others meanwhile try and convince him to let the law deal with it but his anger and frustration is so intense he refuses to stop his vigilante ways no matter what.
This film is interesting in some ways. I like the angle involving vigilantism and that the film actually seems to concern itself with it as an issue, something of a rarity when it comes to Kung Fu films. The final fight also proves quite thrilling and makes use of some rather unique locations for such a climactic showdown. That said, this film does have its problems too. There's way too much fighting, in fact fighting seems to be almost always going on way too often way too long, a lot of which unfortunately just isn't all that good in terms of execution. Still if you like your Kung Fu films to have lots and lots of fighting action and raw intensity, you'll most likely enjoy this.
