Summary: More Dragon Lee as Bruce, but still not great...
Tai Ming (Dragon Lee) is travelling to a village to look for work and stumbles across the aftermath of a massacre. Bandits have been stealing goods from local caravans even though guards ride along to protect the shipments. Dragon is eventually hired by Master Lee (Lee Ye-Min), the head of the town, to protect the next shipment, which angers Hu Tin (Martin Chui), the leader of the local security force. Also caught in the middle is Master Lees daughter (Seo Jeong-Ah), who has caught the eye of both Hu and Tai Ming. It turns out that the entire situation is under the control of Tiger Pang (Casanova Wong), who happens to be an old classmate of Tais. Everyone, from the security force to the bandits, work for Tiger, and when Tai Ming threatens to expose this, things start to get out of control.
Reviewer Score: 6
Another slightly above average movie with Dragon Lee doing his best Bruce Lee imitations, but with the added bonus of a showdown with Casanova Wong. Unfortunately you have to sit through over an hour of average choreography to get to the finale. There are fights along the way featuring Martin Chui wearing a magic amulet and featuring a freaky protruding belly button, a good fight with the solid Kim Ki-hong, and a standoff with two bodybuilders in the vein of Bolo Yeung. But the standout is Dragons fight with the dazzling Casanova Wong. Its quite fast and well done, but still doesnt meet the standards of some of the best fights that were being filmed at the time. Not sure who the choreographer was, but I would have liked to see these two under the direction of Eagle Han or ideally Lau Kar-leung.

Summary: Dragon Lee vs Casanova Wong!
A Korean production edited, dubbed, and ripped off by Joseph Lai's IFD productions. Dragon Lee vs Casanova Wong! What more can you ask for! The story and pacing a decent and Wong makes a great villain. The final fight lacks Casanova's kicking abilities, but his shapes make this worthwhile. Casanova has these callouses on his fingers of his right hand, but when Dragon pokes the middle of his foot, the callouses fall off his hands! These gimmicks in Korean kung fu movies are great! Worth a look if there's nothing to watch. **1/2/*****
