Expert fighters must band together in an ultimate martial arts showdown when Southern China's High Officers begin smuggling opium over the border, and endangering the lives of the local villagers. With no one to protect them and an Emperor who does not honor them, the people turn to the Master Fighters Lin Shih Tsui and Hwang Fei Hung to battle the evil officers and bring justice to the land.

Customer Reviews

Great action, great fight scenes, skillful actors.
Amazon Customer
He still throws a better kick than anyone, and you can't argue with that!
Adam C. Scarbrough
The comic relief is also handled much more deftly.

I bought this movie without ever having seen it which is always risky. I am not disappointed. It is not the greatest ever but definitely worth seeing, especially for fans of Donnie Yen. A simple, yet good story and fairly realistic fighting, aside from the giant leaps around the room or one man holding a table top above his head while two men fight on it, will keep your interest.

Donnie Yen stars as the over confident and somewhat naive young man who thinks he can do no wrong. He goes through his ups and downs and learns an important life lesson: DON'T GET HOOKED ON OPIUM! His kung fu is still full of flare and power as he takes on everyone he meets and actually shows a bit of acting range. There are some great match-ups for fight scenes, it just needed a couple more fights overall to make this one of the best. He still throws a better kick than anyone, and you can't argue with that! Maybe you can, but it will fall on deaf ears. I'm not listening!

As for the DVD itself, the picture is good and sharp and is widescreen. The audio is done well and the sound is clear. The dubbing is average, no better or worse than most movies made around this time.

This movie really deserves four stars but the comedy relief by the woman who plays his aunt is terrible! It really takes away from the otherwise highly entertaining film. Just try to ignore it. You don't watch these films for superior acting, but for the kung fu wizardary, and this one will not let you down.

Format: DVD
Like many people have said in earlier reviews, there is a lot of "junk" to get through in the beginning of the movie. First you must endure the notorious aunt, who is indeed very annoying. I like it best when So's dad slaps her teeth out at the end. However, I found that the opium parts were not too bad since they were a central point of the plot (no matter how hobbychobby it may have been). I also wish that wong fei hung could have been a better actor as well, since he seemed to take a second seat to Donnie, even though he is supposed to be the superior fighter. Most parts with Donnie in it are tolerable, if not humerous. Like when he skips around the city dressed as a peasant and throws cooked goose around to the beggars, and when he is locked in a room to break his opium habit, hehe. One particularly entertaining part is when he starts beating that drum in the beginning to defy that female-led clan, and then kicks everyone's ass. I think that the Beggar So character is interesting, so the somewhat dumbed down plot is not all that terrible.

Aside from that, the movie is completely redeemed at the end with Donnie's drunken style, which is without a doubt amazing. It is the sole reason why I like this film so much. If you are a Yen or Yuen fan, then I would suggest buying this movie.

Well... Lets see, for starters the acting was horrific. The plot was a little cliche, but the fights were AWESOME. Many of the fights were VERY UNIQUE, but interesting. Although I gave it the 4 stars for the final fight scene with the drunken style fighting. You may find yourself laughing at the horrible acting though.

I recommend 36th Chamber and The Invincible Pole Fighter for a really good plot and fight scenes.

Great action, great fight scenes, skillful actors. The plots tend to always be the same (avenging a murdered master, rescuing a kidnapped girl, challenging a drug lord, etc….). But I watch them for the great choreographed fight scenes.

This is one of Donnie's old films and its shows how far he has came. I collect his movie and this is one that would never get pulled off the shelf.
