Duel at Forest (1974)

Summary: Plenty of fury, but .......
This film is simply not up to the standard you'd expect of such a fine cast. At least at the beginning, the word for the fight scenes is "amateurish". Obviously pulled punches and kicks are numerous, and cringing was my general reaction. Things generally improve as the story wears on, but I had to resort to fast-forwarding a few times to cope.

The acting is, to say the least, melodramatic and the story feverish. Although the good guys and the bad guys are clearly distinguished, I had trouble sympathizing with anyone.

Having said all that, there is plenty of action, and the story moves along at just enough pace to hold some level of interest.

Overall, this one is a case of "disappointing and should have been much better". Below average.
