Summary: NULL

As Great Britain imports crates of opium into the Orient, a close-knit company of Chinese swashbuckling Robin Hood pirates conspire to sink the ships. The Brits are to the person unprincipled, prevaricating murderers; the pirates are all good-hearted and patriotic, the only exception being a Japanese traitor. Great set decoration and lots of fu and swordplay keep you from paying too much attention to the cannon-ball sized plot holes in the plot. Good matinee fare.

(2.5/4)
