Summary: So-so chop sockey

Pretty much the fare you'd expect from Bruce Li. Bruce plays an upright and honest tough law enforcer, modelled as much on Dirty Harry as his namesake.

Dana is dropped into the mix to provide provocation and nudity. She gets full frontal in two brief scenes. A bath scene at 33 minutes and a swim in a pool at 53 minutes. For the rest of the time, she's basically a clothes horse. There's also a brief scene, early on, where a couple of anonymous lovelies hang around in a bar scene without clothes, though they are only shown topless.

Bolo Yeung is yet again underused. He spends more time looking menacing than doing what he does best i.e. hitting people and showing off his huge muscles.

The fu fighting is pretty average, although, as usual, the climatic fight is worth watching, and occupies about the final twenty minutes.
