Summary: This is Hwang Jang Lee's last Korean movie of the 80's........

This is Hwang Jang Lee's last Korean movie of the 80's, a Korean/Taiwanese coproduction shot in Korea that starred a young and in his prime Sun Kwok Ming. Hwang is is too cold blooded, almost wooden, even in his fight scenes. He doesn't do much at all. Worth viewing is you have nothing else to watch. The Korean yell dubbing, especially for the monks, are atrocious. Dragon Claws(1983) had the same dubbing yell problem. **/*****

There are plenty of rebels still trying to resist the Ching movement. Hwang Jang Lee plays a Ching, under Manchu Governor's orders, to find the remaining pages of a register with all the rebel's names while at the same time, killing all the rebels. Good movie that portrays Shaolin life well. Bad ending though.
