This martial arts goose laid a rotten egg!
1 May 1999 | by emmSee all my reviews

This may be the worst martial arts film to date, based on my numerous viewings. A strange combination of mystery and intrigue makes this slow and chunky, and this doesn't work. The only thing worthy is the front clamshell cover I have in front of me. It makes a wonderful novelty item for movie-based collecting purposes. On the box, an illustration of two kung-fu fighters also comes with the line "Ed Parker vs. Master Bong Soo Han". That moment comes at the end, and it's certainly nothing to get excited over. Both of them contributed to the fighting choreography; laughable and rushed out to the extreme! For a low-rate 70s picture, the cinematographies of street corners, parking areas, and gas stations look beautiful. Master Bong Soo Han is best known for KENTUCKY FRIED MOVIE; no wonder why his Hapkido techniques aren't "finger lickin' good". After being eighteen years out of print, it's likely this horrible production won't be given another chance. Do yourself a special favor: KILL THE GOLDEN GOOSE!
