This is a very entertaining Jimmy Wang B-Crime Martial Arts Action produced
by Australia and Hong Kong and taking place
mainly in Australia. The racist aussies and the love scenes are cringy
but the action is fantastic. Actually this film resembles
a future Jackie Chan international martial arts action adventure with
Jackie doing his stunts in various places of the world,
but with the exception that Jimmy Wang kills a lot of people. He takes
no prisoners and mostly resembles a killing machine.
The film starts at Uluru (Ayers Rock) where cops catches
the Hong Kong heroin smuggler Win Chan (Sammo Hung in one of
his first film roles) after a cool chase and fight on top of the Rock.
The Aussie narc police sends after Hong Kong Special Unit police inspector
Fang Sing Leng (Jimmy Wang) to get Win Chan
for extradition from Australia. But a sniper kills Win Chan before he
can snitch on the dope organisation and soon Inspector
Fang is loose chasing down the bad guys and the dope boss "Wilton"
This film was unknown to me but Great Fun. Non-Stop action with lots
of great martial arts fighting (with mostly chinese fighters)
including a great chase scene through the alleys of Sydney where Fang
gets the sniper (Grant Page, great stuntman).
The love scenes were Cringy though, badly shot and with awful dialogue.
Sammo made his 1st action choreography work on
this film the director says in the commentary.
Film presented in anamorphic widescreen and with english
dialogue DD 5.1 plus swedish subtitles, region 2 DVD.
Extras: Audio commentary with director and scriptwriter Brian Trenchard-Smith,
actor Hugh Keays-Byrne and stuntman Grant Page
