No guns please, we are martial artists
It is difficult for martial arts and guns to coexist in a movie. When they do the options are limited to 1) he shoots and misses the defender, 2) he shoots but the defender ducks behind something, 3) he shoots but the defender grabs an object or person to absorb the bullet, 4) he shoots but the defender hits him in the gun arm with a dart or similar object, 5) he shoots but the gun misfires or is out of bullets, and finally 6) he shoots and hits the defender but not in a vital area.
There are a lot of guns in this movie to the point I thought it would be all about guns but there are some fights. The story is easy to follow because every single line of dialog is exposition. Every time a character speaks it is a sentence explaining what has happened, what is happening or what will happen next. I have never seen such over use of exposition in any movie.
This is a movie for fans of Jimmy Wang Yu only to say they have seen all his films. It has no value for anyone else. If you like Jimmy Wang Yu the movie is out there as a VHS converted to digital file with English dubbing done by voice actors more suited for children's cartoons. The VHS also chops off Jimmy's final martial technique in the final fight so you can't see what move he used to kill the guy.
