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 Lee’s 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 Tai’s. 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.

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 Dragon’s fight with the dazzling Casanova Wong. It’s quite fast and well done, but still doesn’t 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.
