This film is similar in style to Drunken Master but unfairly is much less famous (It did actually come first). The action is well cheorographed and well paced, Jackie uses a good variety of props in the fights. Lo Wei gave Jackie much more creative control this time, and it shows when you compare this to films like Dragon Fist, it has more original action and more comedy. Like in drunken master, Jackie has cool training sequences in this film, including a set of upside down push-ups which are flawless.
If only Hong Kong Legends had released this instead, then we could have had a less grainy print and the option of subtitles, a commentary and some good extras. The film itself though, should be seen along with 'Snake in the Eagles Shadow and 'Drunken Master', as it is almost as good as these films.
