Incredible hit from HK!!!
11 October 2001 | by Buck_FernandezSee all my reviews

This film is awesome! Pure action, no cut. Shots and the best Kung-fu. And familiar faces from the ol´school; Hwang Jang Lee(Drunken master, Tower of death, etc) Playin a good character with incredible fight scenes, or David Chiang (The legend of the seven golden vampires, Kings of money and fists) as the boss of the Iron angels. The final fight scene is so wild. Two women in a death fight, bloody kung-fu (that´s cool). A non-stop action film from the 80´s. HK films fan? You must see this HIT.
