Good mixing between fantasy and martial art
21 November 2001 | by gila_filmSee all my reviews

This really a good movies. Considering the year (1982), the f/x is amazing and eye candy. The plot is great, a mix with typical kung fu movies with fantasy. Probably, at the early of 80's, that kind of movie is a trend in Hong Kong (Zu Warrior and The Buddha's Palm, for example). If you really like an entertaining fantasy movies, it's highly recommended from me.
