I hadn't watched that many Gordon Liu pictures until recently, but I've really come to appreciate him as a martial arts actor. Besides is skills and charisma, he probably has the best scowl of any actor I've ever seen. In this film, directed by Lieh Lo, Liu takes on an evil white-beard-stroking priest, White Lotus, who actually looks very similar to one of the two characters Liu would play in Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill" films. The film has a pretty familiar story, with the White Lotus doing some evil things, Lui then trains to fight White Lotus, and then the two face of in a climactic fight. This film does feature some clever training sequences I hadn't seen before, mainly of which is Liu practicing on paper mannequins to perfect his fighting technique. Terrific faction, solid production values and a strong performance from Liu makes this a must see for kung-fu film fans.
