Golden Needles (1975)
Reviewed by: Gaijin84 on 2009-05-17
Summary: Not bad with plenty of familiar faces...
Decent adventure with Joe Don Baker as Dan Mason, a hard-living ex-pat living in Hong Kong that knows his way around the city better than any guilao there. Hired to find a guide to the perfect acupuncture method, he runs afoul of a gang of locals that are after the same thing. Big names from Hong Kong cinema pepper the cast, like Roy Chiao, Richard Ng and Lee Ka-Ting. Almost feels like a parallel story to Enter the Dragon, but without the overwhelming presence of Bruce Lee. Jim Kelly has a relatively small role as a friend of Masons that provides some muscle when the plot moves to Los Angeles.
