| The reviewer also fails to feel the cowboy influence here
The movie starts with minimal dialog. A young boy tries to keep his father from hanging but he is too small. He grows up quickly to be Don Wong, the strong silent type. The bad guy enters, tosses children around and kills men with one strike. Until he meets Don, that is. The chief of the Black Dragon Sect is not pleased.

To the casino, where children can watch at the dice table, along with Don. Some guy enters and the casino closes. Doris is warned that a man is after her. Next is a weird scene with girls and fuzzy fans dancing. The kid from the casino follows Don. The smoker from the casino tells Don they have a common enemy. Don is still not speaking. Doris fights him with her fuzzy feather fans. She never had a chance to win then she kills herself and there is no explanation.

Smoker offers to take over the business of killing. The kid urges Don not to kill anymore and wants to learn kung fu. Before smoker is killed, he tells Don he was sent by the government to kill the Black Dragon clan and urges Don to continue the mission.

I think I first watched this movie back in 2013. I wrote a review in 2016 but failed to post it here for reasons unknown. I have the Rarescope DVD and another copy as a digital file that plays with English dub and hard coded English subtitles in a widescreen (yet seems a tad small) format.

Another reviewer here mentioned the DVD has an audio commentary. I doubt I listened to that commentary the other times I watched this movie. So now I have something to do!. First, I finish here by rating this movie just average for the year and genre and can recommend it only for hard core fans.
