| No rats were harmed, or even seen, in making this movie
I have the video CD release. I am a fan of martial arts movies of the golden age from 1967 to 1984. Shaw Brothers dominated that genre and at times I watch a Shaw Brothers movie regardless of the genre because I have a lot of time on my hands.

The movie starts with our lovely "pickpocketress" at work. In the movies a lovely lady wearing the brightest red hat in Hong Kong would be a pickpocket. In the real world, never.

I watched this movie more for reasons other than the movie itself. Two reasons, the sites and the clothes. Hong Kong, particularly Central in the 1970s, is the setting of so many scenes. I kept pausing the scenes to compare then and now. The clothes of the 1970s are my favorite style. Tanny wore an outfit just like my high school sweetheart wore back then.

Somehow people who have a taste for these movies manage to find them. That particular fan would find this an average one worth a watch and that's all.
