The Yuen Brothers come through with the action
28 July 2017 | by ckormos1See all my reviews

It starts with a confusing scene where Andy and another guy seem to have captured each other and are also surrounded by a criminal gang. After some action, there is a quick cut to Rosamund on a train and Andy, now all cleaned up, enters. Norman is there too playing poker. They disembark. Andy meets his uncle who has money problems. He has a valuable scroll that Andy must protect and Norman and Teddy are out to steal it.

Story-wise it tries to be clever with the gambling and the thievery but it falls short of being truly clever. The action choreography and direction from the Yuen clan are superb and make the movie worth watching.

I found a proper DVD (the picture on the box is just like the one here on IMDb) with wide screen and English subtitles so the picture was easy on the eyes on a modern flat screen television. I rate it an average 6 of 10 for the year and genre.
