Unknown but worth discovering
Where did I find this DVD? It is widescreen but the resolution is no better than "VHS", still there is good lighting and color. It is English dubbed but slips into subtitles at times. Some scenes are obviously missing 2-3 second film sequences. I mention all this because when I find a good martial arts movie I prefer to own a legitimate copy out of respect to the talent but sometimes I can't be sure. All that said, this is definitely a good martial arts movie. There is an interesting plot of mystery where things are not what they appear to be. Unfortunately when the truth is revealed it is always by explanation rather than demonstration. Still, the storyline is good so it's not just a series of fights loosely tied together. The fights are good and plenty. Kuan Chun Chi,the lead, was a Shaw Brothers veteran of many great films including the Shaolin Temple series. Candy Wen Xue-Er adds her skills and pretty face. All in all, this movie has all the mandatory requirements - a good story, good fights and training sequences, comic relief sidekick, pretty kung fu girl initially mistaken for a man, moustached villain, and long last fight. I am rating this a 7 for fans of the genre and adding this to my list of unknown but must see and worthy of a remake movies.
