This is propably the first movie i saw with YUEN HUA that made me truly respect him. he was great in this one , and pulled no punches when it came to dealing with the likes of PHILLIP KAO ; CHEN SING ; LIANG JAN REN and WEN CHUNG LIANG.
Great interplay of weapons and hand to hand combat with some rather ' humorous ' special effects. Guess those effects were remarkable at that time in movie making.
Some really nice locales , great costumes and some original weapons on display here. the sroty is passable , the quality of fighting is not , it's simply fantastic.
bear in mind that producers back then used martial artists to act and not actors to do martial arts.......the acting is almost always atrocious but the fight seqeuncing and choreography is in the upper tier ; a classic indeed.......................
I will give this an " A " minus , simply because the director did not show us enough of chen sing (villian),however, it is worth the purchase .
GET IT !!!!
