Summary: Once it gets going, damn good

The first 25 minutes are, surprisingly, very talky. There’s not much in the way of action in this part, but stay with it. The remainder contains plenty of high quality fu, and with increasingly small breaks between fights. There are terrific fighters by the dozen here, though I was only able to definitely ID about a dozen. Among them is a very young Mang Hoi. There’s even a brief topless flash from two schoolgirls. And a terrific track from Pink Floyd’s Meddle is played over the climactic fight scene.

Bruce Lee is credited as the action designer, and it shows. Recommended.
