Editorial Reviews

Young master Cao Le (Jackie Chan) chases away Chin Chien, his pregnant girlfriend and one of the palace maidens. Cao Le's cruel act is actually motivated with the desire to save her life, since a vicious gang of "Killer Bee" bandits is about to attack Le's family estate. They arrive, led by Chin Chang Yin, a woman who had her face scarred as a child by Le's father, and kill everyone. Cao Le's life is spared and he goes on a long and perilous journey in order to re-unite with Chin Chien. While Cao Le tries reach both of them, he is constantly tormented by Chin Chang Yin, who took unusual interest in his plight.

Format: DVD
This low-budget 1977 Kung Fu flick has heartbroken Chan obsessing over his girlfriend Chin-Chin, who has been "stolen" by one of his good friends (who just turns out to be THE bad guy). The plot is excessively complicated and not easily understood, but, in a way, the film is touching. It's part love story, part Kung Fu slapstick. The fight scenes are reasonable, with young Chan displaying great gymnastics feats; but the stunts don't nearly rank up with the best of Jackie. I was slightly moved by Jackie's performance, but, to be perfectly honest, it was mediocre at best. The low budget is quite evident, with cheap props (like a rubber hand), and "dress for less" costumes. But, hey, if you're a Chan-atic like myself, buy it. Someday, it might be a collector's item.

This review pertains to the Columbia Tri Star DVD release

Special Features: None really, but there are trailers for other movies:
Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon / Gen-X Cops / The One (Jet Li movie)

Region coded: 1 and 4

No review of story here - better reviews below on that. This is for the DVD presentation for those who are collectors

Picture Quality: 2.31:1 widescreen enhanced (results in letterboxed presentation)
if: HD=5 / DVD (superbit)=4.5 / DVD=4 / Laserdisc = 3.50 / VHS = 2.75, then this picture quality :
3.50 (out of possible 4 for a fine quality non superbit DVD) - (see pictures attached)

c) Audio Quality: receiver confirms: FORMAT: 2/0/0. [Dolby Digital 48kHz / 16bit 192kbps]
Strong hiss can be heard in scenes (noise floor too high), but never a distraction.
The Dialog is Mandarin - (the case says "CANTONESE") - many of the actors speak mandarin, some speak cantonese (The dialog is dubbed from Cantonese (so both the Mandarin and English track are dubs) /
Neither track has Jackie Chan's voice.

I don't know where you could get a finer version for your collection! Surely, no artist has all blockbuster projects, heavens look at the stuff Jackie is part of now - very different the his smash hits, and not blockbusters, but nevertheless, CHAN!

go for it collectors - you'll be glad you did

To Kill With Intrigue is a great little kung-fu movie; if you like the genre, you'll dig it. Mind you, this disc is so mind-numbingly awful that it's hard to watch. The video transfer is grainy and spotted, the audio fades in and out and pops, and just to add insult to injury, while the film has both english and cantonese audio, there are no subtitles; nor is there even a menu option to change the audio- it must be done manually.
Certainly worth the purchase if you can find it for [$$$] ...- good as the film itself is, this is low-quality enough that you shouldn't be expected to pay any more.

Chu Feng is on a mission to kill Jackie's family. She butchers everyone exept for Jackie, she falls in love with him and later saves his life by putting Jackie through a torturous trainning regimen so that Jackie can defend himself against some two-faced "friends". This film is chillingly violent!!!

Start your collection here. Youll love the kung fu, the costumes, and the storyline is classic. Jackie Chans skills will be tested by his most notorious enemies. Great character development full of surprizes!! Who is the fifth dragon? Who is the leader of the bloody rain clan? Kung fu magic. Devilmonk
