The Young Dragons (1975)
Reviewed by: Darryl on 1999-12-21
Woo's first film is an exciting bit of entertainment pertaining tocorrupt Chinese triads (as opposed to non-corrupt?) who sell guns and ammunition to Japanese troops during the Sino-Japanese war. With a martial arts-expert on their side they slaughter anyone in their way until... Not too predictable, but enough so. Golden Harvest bought this independently produced film, re-edited it (reportedly, and it does have a good pace) and released it. Better than HAND OF DEATH, but not a bad film at all.
