Summary: 6/10

This 1977 film felt more like a 1984 film, which sounds like a compliment until you remember that Shaw Brothers had pretty much stopped making good films by 1984 :p The manic pacing and cheesy special effects put it in the same class as films like BUDDHA'S PALM and LITTLE DRAGON MAIDEN, and if you like that sort of thing it's clearly worth checking out. Don't go expecting ZU WARRIORS though :)

Summary: Just over the top

Though this movie is 1 hour and 10 minutes,It is quite entertaining for what it is though way too unbelieveable to take seriously and a bit too bloody to be for kids. The only regonisably star is Danny Lee.

The special effects look worst than anything from power rangers, the fighting leads to lazer shooting scenes, the bad guys are at least interesting, and if u can stand the average plot and chessy special effects then this is a movie to see

People would think i am crazy to give this fun movie
