| Naked women swordfight, need I say more?
It starts at a train station then quickly cuts to a casino. The sex scene was just weird and I will say no more. Nick and Wilson meet and fight then realize they are on the same side. The plot is revealed as the standard evil Japanese plot.

This was Nik Cheung Lik's third lead role since 1973 "Kung Fu's Hero". I also reviewed that movie. I noted that Nik seemed to have some skill with the nunchuks but overall most of the action was sloppy as in off target or poor timing. This movie is a definite improvement in the action.

My copy is a digital file that plays on a HDTV as widescreen but small. The resolution is typical of the old VHS tape format. The dialog is English dubbed by the "A team" of voiceover actors.

There is plenty of diverse action and the story doesn't drag too much. The Japanese army has guns and guns are always a problem when mixed with martial arts. Except for one scene the guns were nothing more than props, so problem solved. The most interesting scene was the two naked women swordfight. It was too short but 90 minutes would also have been too short. Overall the movie doesn't get any better than average for the year and genre. I would recommend it for hard core fans only.
