"First viewing - Sept. 2nd Chia-Liang Liu double feature There are some epic fight scenes throughout this one that make it worthwhile, though the actual plot leaves something to be desired. Basically it's just the characters fighting to determine whether Chinese or Japanese martial arts is the best, and since the film was made by the Chinese you can easily guess which will win.
