Summary: This movie was made in 1982 and it's a Korean production........

This movie was made in 1982 and it's a Korean production redubbed and edited by IFD. It's also a ripp off of Ninja in the Dragon's Den, with similar scenes, the bowling ball, the Taosit magic, breasts that make Hwang's face explode, ect. It's also one of the best Hwang Jang Lee vs Dragon Lee movies. It's well shot and choreographed. Recommended. ***1/2/*****

Summary: Pretty good action no-brainer

The lack of subtitles (grrrrrrr) made it hard to pick up the more subtle elements of the plot (though one doubt there'd be much subtlety). However, it's very clear who the good and the bad guys are, even though one of the good guys (not Dragon, actor unknown) looks like he belongs with the baddies.

Anyone who has seen Hwang Jang Li in action before knows what to expect, and he's at his oh-my-god-how-does-he-do-that best. Dragon and several lesser known mortals (one of whom is known - Ching Siu Tung, confusingly credited as Chan Siu Tung) do quite a creditable job at keeping up with the Korean superkicker.

Tons of ripper action with a silly but bearable story.
