Summary: Lots of action

At least two sources describe this as an adult/erotic film. They must have a different version, as there are no sex scenes and not even a mild hint of nudity. The worst I can say is references to bad monks wanting to rape virgins to gain greater skills. However, there is a short flashback scene at the beginning which looks like it could have lead to a sex scene, so perhaps I was just unlucky !

That said, most of the screen time is taken up with good guys and bad guys thumping each other, and the martial arts is of a remarkably good standard, considering what a low buget flick this is. I can't say I really felt anything much for any of the characters, probably due to the wooden acting. But if you want plenty of action, this one is at least worth a look.
