“Thanks to Netflix, Iu0026#39;ve finally had the chance to take in some Shaw Brothers movies and see what all the fuss is about them, this movie included. Itu0026#39;s a pretty enjoyable martial arts exercise overall; if you like the 1970s to early 1980s style of Hong Kong martial arts, youu0026#39;ll certainly like this one. Thatu0026#39;s not to say that itu0026#39;s perfect, however. The script does have a few patches that while I wonu0026#39;t say are boring, do come off as kind of padding and may have you mildly urging the movie to get on with it. Also, the basic story is one that has been told in dozens of other martial arts movies. But with the inclusion of ninjas, it definitely has a fresh element to liven things up. Indeed, the scenes with the ninjas have enough nuttiness (not to mention well choreographed and exciting action) to make it worth sitting through the parts that are routine or a little slow. The production values are also pretty solid for this kind of movie, even though itu0026#39;s clear that the u0026quot;outdooru0026quot; sequences are actually on a soundstage. Definitely give this movie a look if youu0026#39;re craving some martial arts action with a little silliness.”
