[b]Chia-Liang Liu is one of the greatest martial arts directors of all time. He directs, costars, and choreographed this picture. Liu also does a brilliant job of utilizing Gordon Liu in this picture.[/b][/color][/font][/size] [size=3][font=Times New Roman][b][/b][/font][/size][b][font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white] [/color][/size][/font][/b] [b][/b][b][size=3][font=Times New Roman][color=white]“If you can show kindness, that man may surrender his heart to you.”[/color][/font][/size][/b] [b][/b][b][font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white] [/color][/size][/font][/b] [b][/b][b][size=3][font=Times New Roman][color=white]The storyline for this martial arts classic is common for this genre. However, any film directed by Liu Chia-Liang and starring Gordon Liu is a must see. The training scenes in this picture are solid, not as good as Master Killer, but still very entertaining. This picture was also a rare opportunity to see Liu Chia-Liang as a villain. I strongly recommend this picture to fans of the martial arts genre.[/color][/font][/size][/b] [b][/b][b][font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white] [/color][/size][/font][/b] [b][/b][b][size=3][font=Times New Roman][color=white]“He’ll be an expert one day.”[/color][/font][/size][/b] [b][/b][b][size=3][font=Times New Roman][color=white]“An expert at what?”[/color][/font][/size][/b] [b][font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white][/color][/size][/font][/b] [b][/b][b][font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white]Grade B[/color][/size][/font][/b] [color=white][/color]
