| Unrealistic attempt at social commentary with no relevance today
I have the video CD release. This movie is followed by 1975 "Big Brother Cheng".

Our hero, the restaurant owner, treats his workers like family. They have to deal with punks and juvenile thugs that are coddled by the justice system and literally get away with murder.

This movie seems to be a commentary on society in Hong Kong in the 1970s. It cannot possibly be accurate otherwise Hong Kong would have destroyed itself by the 1980s. Many scenes leave the viewer wondering if they are supposed to be crying or laughing. Whatever message it had back then could not have possibly hit the target. There is also nothing relevant for a viewer today.

Shaw Brothers should not have disturbed the dust on the reels of film and left the celluloid to disintegrate over time rather than releasing this movie for home audiences.
