Movie Reviews

It says not rated, but you don't want to let your kids watch

(4 out of 5 stars)

"So I picked this thing up for 4 reasons: Yuen Biao, Yuen Wah, Lo Hieh, and Phillip Ko. Sounds like a some good kung fu's gonna hit the screen. Not one bit. But I am actually glad to get a break from it after seeing this flick. This one had me gripping the rocking chair for over 80 minutes. And there was no rocking going on. The acting is brilliant. I had NO idea yuen Biao could actually act. I thought he was ok in OUATIC part 1, but he showed me he can act with pretty much anybody.
Now like I said there is no fu, but again, don't let your kids watch this. But for us movie fans in general, there is one good fight scene in the movie and it is very brutal. Now Lo lieh, Phillip Ko, and Yuen Wah, were certainly not showcased in this, but were all AWESOME.

The story starts out with yuen biao's wife getting murdered. Along the way we find out all the details and it is a very juicy story. The hitman is a woman, and has a really funny but cool hair do. So biao and her have a chance meeting and I thought I was gonna see some fu but what you see in this fight is what the movie is. Violent. Not martial artist, just straight up violence. i don't want give nothing away, but people do get shot in various parts of head. And trust me, not telling you the other ways people die, IS NOT giving anything away. You'll see. Now the cinematography does a great job to capture the mood of the film, dark. And the music is AWESOME. Not great , but once again, dark. Now even thought the movie is only 82 minutes, it gives you a pretty complete story.

So overall, I gotta say GREAT acting, GREAT story, and GREAT directing job by alfred cheung.

The dvd has a very good picture, I did not get the tai seng version, but got a deltamac. And the picture was certainly cleaner than most of tai's releases. The sound is very good for 2-channel output. It has cantonese and mandarin languages. The subtitles go a little fast and that is my only real complaint with this dvd.

But you WILL rewind to find out if you missed something, and it is not a hassle for such a good movie."
