"Wang Kuan-Hsiung (aka Champ Wang) stars as a gold digger who strikes it rich. Him and his friends decide that the first thing they will do is buy wives. Wang Kuan-Hsiung is sent into the town, and to my surprise, he actually buys the women and they go everywhere with him. Next we meet Lung Tien-Sheng who plays somewhat of a mysterious character. The story is not really worth going over. The action ranges from good to very bad. And when I say it's nonstop action, I mean it. The action starts right away. The first fight doesn't really have a point to it, but it goes on for a good 5 minutes, and the final fight for 12 minutes. There are only 2 fights that really stood out to me, but there are still 3 or 4 more that are decent. It's hard to recommend this movie, but I enjoyed it.
Picture quality on the Tai Seng DVD is decent."

"I saw this on cable in AC NJ in the late '70's at 3AM. I STILL can't believe what I saw. Some of the BEST moves I have EVER seen, long before CGI, and with all due respect to Bruce Lee, this will blow you away. Some of the fight scenes I have NEVER seen before or since. GREAT! You will not believe the one between two buildings, nor the one 15' above ground on railroad ties!
On the other end of the scale the dubbing was a bit cheesey, and the dialogue from an early Honda manual, but it really doesn't matter. The best action film before "Hidden Tiger" and it is all REAL. You can impress anyone into martial arts by whipping this one out."
