Plot Outline:

Chen Zhen leaves Shanghai for Kyoto and finds nothing but insult and abuse from the Japanese, especially after pursuing Mitsuko Yamada, daughter of the director. Yet when he learns of the death of his old kung fu master - he returns home determined to prove his master died not in a fight, but through poisoning. The honor of Chen and Japan are at stake, leading to one final, epic battle that will settle the score once and for all. -- Chris Kavan

Hands down, and still to this day, the best martial arts action drama that I have seen. Highest standard of impact, and speed!

The plot isn't exactly complicated, as is to be expected...plots soak up precious fist throwing time! This rough and boxer-like martial art bonanza is sure to please any fan of the martial art cinema!

"Fist Of Legend" by Yojimbo

A Chinese martial artist studying in Japan returns home to find his master has been killed during a tournament, but when he faces the inadequate skills of the victor he suspects foul play.

Unfortunately the characterisation is typically cliched and stereotypical and the direction lacks sophistication making for some rather long winded and tiresome i...
