| For fans only to watch once to say you did
This movie includes two Korean actors which seems unique for Shaw Brothers. The rest are older actors and the only ones I recognize are Tien Feng and Fan Mei-Sheng. It opens with a masked man prowling rooftops. Also unique is that these rooftops are certainly not on the Shaw Brothers movie town set. Shaw Brothers movies were filmed inside a studio as much as possible and when outdoors rarely wandered beyond their property line. Considering the Korean actors I wonder if this scene was filmed in South Korea? Our masked man over hears some royals ordering an assassination. He intervenes and escapes with the evidence. Perfect timing right down to the conversation! Masked man delivers the proof to his majesty, Tien Feng. I must complain that the palace set is pathetically cheap and appears a small stage only. Other indoor scenes were elegant as expected. Overall, this movie is relevant to few people today. Unless you are a hardcore fan of Shaw Brothers or martial arts movies there is nothing to see here. I rate it at best mediocre and at worst below average. This grading is on a curve adjusting for the year and genre. Even as a fan it is just a watch once to say I did then done.
