This is pretty routine stuff.
Like many kung fu movies, the plot really loses what little plot there is in the translation. It involves a traitor in Shaolin Temple. Of course, there will be more than one traitor, and everyone but the hero has an ulterior motive.
The kung fu movies usually have very comical, choreographed, stupid looking fight scenes, and this one is among the stupidest. Peple fly through the air like torpedoes, and other goofy looking stuff that make movies like this boring.
The better ones tone the goofy stuff down, and concentrate more on the fun aspects, and on camaraderie between characters. Here, there is one hero and a heroine, with another semi heroine added in, obviously just to be killed, seventies style.
So, we have "complete formula" at work here, and it makes for a very dull time. There just isn't much here.
