One of Jimmy Wang Yu's lesser efforts, 20 June 2016
Author: Leofwine_draca from United Kingdom

Something of a companion piece to the better-known ONE-ARMED BOXER, THE DESTROYER is a Taiwanese martial arts flick with plenty of action, but not a great deal of skill. It's certainly a lesser film that the others that Wang Yu is famous for, being very much a middle-of-the-road yarn with a clichéd plot and clichéd action. It's only the occasional touch of inventiveness that makes this engaging – the beach fight, for instance, or the cheesy special effects that pop up from time to time (love that flying axe!).

Saying that, the action is pretty gory. There are holes punched through necks and blood spraying all over the place. Sadly, none of the fighters are particularly skilled; nevertheless the ribcage-pounding and use of slow motion makes for a pretty weird viewing experience. Wang Yu is as stern as every, tackling his enemies with vigour if not skill, and there are a few actors from ONE-ARMED BOXER returning too, once again typecast as the bad guys. So, if you're not too picky about the action in a film, you'll doubtless enjoy this; but fans looking for quality should go elsewhere.
