GOLDENFIST'S REVIEW: This is one of many US-Filipino produced kung fu movies that came out during the 70s. This must be one of the worst and most hilarious cheep-ass, low budget, pieces of shit ever made! Let's not even discuss the DVD quality (I bought it at Fry's for $4.99, so I cant complain even if the sound is shitty!).
This is also a fun Blaxploitation film. This movie is so HOT DAMN low budget that they had to get Filipinos to play Chinese (there's not a single Chinese name in the credits! Only Spanish/Filipinos). I love my Filipino peeps-no dis.
They have a 'Chinese' kung fu expert in a karate gi (he constantly gets his ass whooped). The main bad guy looks like Bob Villa (that TV handyman) and the other villain is a fake-ass Jim kelly wannabe!
The fight scenes are super-sped up...I just don't know what to say. Oh yeah, there is a topless fight scene when TNT turns off the lights and is wearing white panties, yet when the camera returns to her, they show her stunt double wearing brown panties...Oh, I cant do this anymore...this is one of those films where you have to see it to believe it!
GOLDENFIST'S RATING: 3/10
