"This is a Black Belt Theatre double feature! Red Wolf directed
by PING and Awakening Punch fight choreographer by PING! Are these movies good! Red Wolf is a 1994 film that is like a very violent Under Seige! But a far as action goes, Red Wolf is a thousand times better! Story wise, it's not that great! But it does have Christy Chung in here! She's a hot number! You get to see a close up on her butt which is reason enough to buy this! Red Wolf is in original language with Chinese/English subs.! Awakening Punch is an early-mid 70's kung fu film! The kung fu in this one is pretty good! But 2 things not to like about this
movie is bad picture (especially on the night fights to where you only see shadows and all that)and a very retarded story! Awakened Punch is english dub! QUALITY - The DVD plays how it's suppose to! They did nothing to improve the picture! There are no extras, but this product is cheap! I liked Red Wolf and Awakening Punch was average at best!"
Well, that's 90 minutes of my life I won't be getting back

"What do you get when you cross legendary action choreographer Yuen Woo-ping (here directing rather than choreographing) with the plot of Speed 2, a bland leading man, an immensely irritating leading lady, an obnoxious and untalented child actress and some tired and uninspired action scenes? Unfortunately, the answer is a complete waste of time. Probably a career low for all concerned, it's a real slog getting through to the end of this surprisingly cheap-looking and occasionally amateurish mess, all hope that it will get better being continually thwarted as it staggers from tired action scene to tired action scene. And how can you root for a hero who is so inept that, despite being head of security on a liner, fails to prevent the villains killing every single one of the passengers and crew except the aforementioned irritating females - probably the two people most audience members will want out of the picture and fast?

Worse than Speed 2 - yes, you read that right: even worse than Speed 2. Not worth the time of day."

3.5 stars for an all right martial arts movie

"Red Wolf was a pretty decent movie directed by Yuen Woo-Ping, but don't be expecting anything spectacular.

The movie has plenty of gun-firing, martial arts action, and people dying to satisfy anybody that's entertained by that kind of stuff. The plotline was simple, but plausible - just enough to give the protaganists something to fight for.

When watching the movie in Cantonese, be prepared for some English dubbing thrown in. Although some of the actors in this film are American, I don't see why they felt a need to dub over some of the things they were saying into English when they were clearly speaking Cantonese. Even the Oriental actors had some English dubbing. It's a bit annoying and somewhat laughable seeing their mouths move when nothing is being said due to poor dubbing, but it's done only a few times, so it's not too destracting of the film.

Character development is minimal, so don't be expecting to cry over any of the characters. But the characters still have their distinct personalities and the actors play their roles well enough, so the movie rolls along at a nice pace. There's some humor thrown in for good measure, a little bit of suspense to keep you on the edge a little bit, and plenty of fighting to keep the movie entertaining - even some moments where you're saying to yourself - "Ouch!" Just don't go in expecting an award winner and you'll be satisfied."
