Pretty snow at the end and little else to hold attention
28 June 2019 | by ckormos1See all my reviews

It starts with Chang Yi as a bounty hunter in a casino. He is there to bring in the owner. The opening titles roll to the tune of "Old Turkey Buzzard" sung in Chinese. Next two pawn shop owners send men out to find the missing three young masters. Chang Yi is up to something at a mine. Some videotape is obviously missing here so I don't know what he is up to. Shan Mao has a problem with him and they fight.

The first fight shows creative use of items in the set and Chang Yi's form is spot on so we are off to a good start in the action department. Unfortunately the story that developed was not that interesting and the characters were flat and lacked empathy. It just failed to hold my attention.

I perked up for the final fight in the snow simply because it was outdoors in the snow and you rarely see that in these movies.

My copy is a digital file that seems to have come from an old VHS. The video is square, poor resolution, and has dual Chinese and poorly translated English hard subtitles. There does not seem to be a better copy available. The movie was also released in France, Spain, Portugal, Greece, and Germany. Most likely this was a VHS release. Therefore, somewhere in the world, there might be a slightly better copy but still with VHS as the source.

This movie would only draw the attention of hard core fans of martial arts movies of the golden age from 1967 to 1984. I am such a fan and I cannot recommend it to others. I rate it below average for the year and genre.
