The Shaw Brothers studio is not well known for its modern day action films with the exception of this film and certain others such as Police Force and the Chinatown Kid among others.
This film tells the tale of group of former soldiers who are hired to kill a rebel leader in revenge for the leaders murder of a prominent HK tycoon. However, all is not as it seems in this twisted tale. It would be a shame to spoil this film so I wont discuss the plot any further.
The cast however is amazing this film contains Ti Lung, Johnny Wang, Wong Yue, Chan Wei Man and Lo Leih (sporting an Afro if I remeber correctly). This and some very exciting action scenes and fiights (more like a basher than shapes) contribute to an excellent and a time dark predecessor to the Heroic Bloodshed genre.
