A Shaw Bros. production from 1980, Coward Bastard features Yuen Wah in the title role. Production is studio standard with only marginal results. Director Kuei Chih-Hung was better equiped to working the horror genre where he had most of his work assignments and success. Best thing is the title really. It is the greatest insult one man can call another man, calling into question one's masculinity and family heritage in one devastating blow.
