Version: RBC Entertainment's "Kung Fu Theatre" DVD series. Dub Only. Possible Spoilers:
"Fist of the Double K" is not the style of movie we're used to from the man who made "A Better Tomorrow" and "the Killer". This movie is pretty much your average chopsocky, revenge movie. A young police cadet graduates from the academy, and is sent to a small town run by gangsters - one of whom betrayed the hero's father and left him to die. Plot-wise, that's about it, but no one watches kung-fu movies expecting a great story. The action scenes are pretty good (as in all old-school kung-fu movies, any important character obviously has some sort of unique, bizarre weapon or ability - boomerangs of death, for example). Only complaint is the dubbing - one of the characters at the start sounds a lot like Porky Pig. Otherwise, its a fun movie.
