In my opinion this flick should be credited with TOP honors for world-wide kung fu-proliferation, alongside classics like "King Boxer" and, of course, Bruce Lee's "The Chinese Connection", all from the same year. This combines the former's fight-frequency and plot-feasibility with the latter's top-notch fight-quality! If you like 70s kung fu, you CANNOT go wrong with this film!

Angela Mao ("Broken Oath") plays Yu Ying, a Chinese girl studying Hapkido in Japan-occupied Korea with her two brothers, Fan Wei (Action director Sammo Hung, "Knockabout") and Kao Chung (Carter Wong, "Story of the Dragon"). After beating up a group of Japanese bullies, their master (Hapkido ultra-Grandmaster Ji Han Jae) urges the trio to return to Japan-occupied China and open up a dojo, spreading the art as a means of self-discipline and resistance to tyranny, though with a strong emphasis on tolerance. They agree and head home, little dreaming that the Japanese Black Bear Karate school will threaten their peace, patience and, possibly, their lives.

Yeah, the plot is fairly formulaic but the fights are WAY ahead of their time! Not only are the near-constant altercations fast but there are some groovy, legitimate Hapkido moves shown, particularly from Grandmaster Ji in the film's early moments AND in the form of a rare good-guy appearance from the always-impressive Whang In Shik ("Young Master"), standing-by for an early sparring session and one full-on bash later on! The Japanese master (Yamane Turuo, "Lone Wolf and Cub: Sword of Vengeance") also gets to show some sweet Karate maneuvers! I should probably mention that our 3 leads are not too bad either!

Although it was fun watching this movie and seeing the young Angela Mao after all these years this product was a let-down for me based on what I was expecting due to the other reviews that I read here prior to purchase. I guess my standards are higher or I received a different DVD than the one's that got 3 stars or above in the other reviews. My DVD looked like it was copied from a 2nd or 3rd generation VHS tape. Picture quality throughout ranged from fair to poor and in many places there was static and lines in the picture. If that was the only thing wrong I would have been ok with it as I have collected many older videos that are so-so for their nostalgic value. The worst thing about this DVD is that its copied from a pan and scan version that has been re-centered and enlarged so anything that isnt in the exact center of the picture is cut off and cannot be seen. For example...when the credits roll at the beginning you can only see a part of a name or a credit. Throughout the film there are many scenes where two or more people are out of frame to the right or left (or both) of the picture then you might see half a face, part of a leg, or a sudden fist come flying in to frame not knowing who it belongs to. The Box says that this DVD is "digitally remastered and restored". Don't believe it. This is a rip-off. NOT RECOMMENDED

The video quality and sound are very good for an early 70's low budget Hong Kong kung fu film. The fight scenes are well choreographed, and the story is well paced. Bruce Lee fans will quickly notice the similarities between this picture, and The Chinese Connection, as both were produced by Raymond Chow (Bruce's long time business partner), and were made in the same style. I loved this "blast from the past".

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.
