During World War II, two Japanese prisoners are sent to manage a Chinese labor camp. When the Japanese push the workers too far, they begin to revolt. This is a somewhat interesting premise (at least in the world of old-school kung fu movies) let down by weak fight scenes. The choreography is sloppy and the editing style is haphazard -- anyone who thinks fight scenes with too many closeups and quick cuts are an American invention should take a look at this movie. On second thought, don't bother -- it's really just another cookie-cutter revenge movie that's really not worth your time.
