release year:1980 genre:Hong Kong martial arts viewing setting:home DVD, 6/22/99 what I expected:lots of rapid-fire action what I got:that, with a minimal plot
synopsis:Murder and plotting mar a young man's return to his hometown.
impressions:This had a lot of action, and high-quality action - much superior to the Hollywood action scenes we usually see. Still, I don't really care for movies like this, because they tend to be too lighthearted (lightheaded) for my tastes.
acting:Decent, though it was all subtitled for those of us who don't know any Eastern languages.
the good:Great, realistic martial arts scenes.
the bad:Confusing plot, slow parts.
final word:Worth seeing if you like this genre.
