we are writing about a Taiwan 1974 movie "Seventy Two Hours in Green Town" starring Chang Yi and Nancy Yen Nan-See. It starts with Chang Yi on the run after being framed for a murder.

I first watched this movie in 2016 but did not post a review then. The copy I had was a digital file of minimal quality with English dubbed. "Jam Joom Video" and "President Studios" is posted in a few frames. I suspect these were the VHS or VCD bootleggers. I have since acquired a better quality copy. This digital file has the title page "Die Todespranke Des Karatetigers". I think that is Germen but this is dubbed into English. It is also wide screen and the quality is better than expected.

The action is good but there is not much action. One scene in this film was "movie magic". Here's what I mean by that. As we all know, movies in this genre can often be stinkers. Another thing fans of this genre know, but often forget, is that these movies can sometimes have special moments. This is when everything seems to come together and a scene is created that hits the high note, shines brightly, or is simply special. It is unlikely it was planned. It's something that just happened. In this movie at about the 30 minute mark a stunt man squares off against Chang Yi and does an impersonation of Bruce Lee. Chang Yi just scoffs him off and beats him down fast and hard.

I do recommend this movie for fans of the genre but rate it only average.
