Review Here's a great kung-fu film from director Lau-Kar Leung, take a basic story with a great cast and you can dish this out exciting film that doesn't stop to smell the flowers. The fight scenes aren' this song and dance shit that involve a bunch of music and attempts at humor, there is one in particular, the finale, which showcases the Lau brothers just taking it to each other. This is Shaw Brothers Magic at its best and you should definately pick it up if you get the chance...The cast is filled with goods, from Gordon Liu, who plays a badass assasin, to Lau who plays the old guy who can still destroy and to Alexander Fu Sheng who plays a conman who probably has one of the most memorable scenes in the entire film. From beginning to end, you are given a bunch of worthy fights even though the plot might not be up to snuff.

Review A superb blend of intricate plotting and stunning fight choreography, this is rightfully regarded as one of Shaw Brothers' best latter day productions, and even those who only consider themselves to be casual fans of the genre should go out of their way to see it. Compared to more recent HK films, the martial arts on display here are presented with a minimum of FX trickery and the results are most impressive. Although he only has a secondary role, Alexander Fu is a standout, displaying his martial and comedic abilities to excellent effect. The most impressive bit of fighting comes during the climax, which features some of the best weapons work around and provides an outstanding showcase for the considerable talents of brothers Lau Kar-leung and Lau Kar-wing.
