This flick could’ve been an excellent feature for Angela. It starts off showing Angela using her Thunderbolt palm. I was thinking Angela would be showcased all throughout the movie. I was wrong. Lo Chi did not make good use of Angela. Instead, Angela faded to black, while Lo Chi focused more on a plot that I seen coming a mile away. The chief of the Black Tiger School, Hung Wei (Pai Ying) joins the rival Dragon Fort school as a blood brother with some evil intentions in mind—to take over the Dragon Fort school. To accomplish this feat, Hung Wei aptly gets everybody at the school to think that one of the brothers, Chen Ying Chieh (James Tien) is a traitor by framing him in a plot pitting the Dragon Fort School with another rival school. The leader of the Dragon Fort school, Lung Lin (Lin Chiao) vows to catch Chen Ying Chieh and bring him back for justice, so he enlists most of the school to search him out. Meanwhile, Hung Wei uses this chance to take over the school while everybody is out. The task is almost accomplished, but Lung Chu (Angela Mao) finds out the secret and escapes to find Chen Ying Chieh and let him know of the situation. Knowing that they cannot defeat Hung Wei and his killer Hurricane kick, the twosome train religiously to better their gung fu until finally coming up with a plan to stop Hung Wei’s killer move. Chen Ying Chieh distorts his face and later sets out to kill Hung Wei with Lung Chu close behind. Watch out Hung Wei!
