An early Donnie Yen and lots of great martial arts action, it's hyperkinetic,
trashy, stupid and great. Just about everybody's doing Kung Fu and
take part in shoot-outs and the western guys (John Salvitti and Michael
Woods) as the baddies looks fine with their martial arts.
The story is all over the place and has something to do with an ancient
relic "The Gold Crystal God" that can cure sickness and the
that are going after it, buried somewhere on the Sacred Mountain. Yeah,
this sounds really crappy i know, like a 7 year old wrote the script.
But, luckily all people in the film seem to forget about the stupid
relic and instead start beating the crap out of each other.
Lisa's (Carrie Ng) father is dying from poison and professor
Lau/Wong (director Hsia Hsu) tells Lisa that her father suffers from
a Black Magic
spell and that only The Gold Crystal God can cure him. Lisa's rich and
she and her bodyguard boyfriend Chin Kwong (Ken Lo) wants to find
the ancient relic and she finances an expedition to the Sacred Mountain
where the Gold Crystal God is hidden somewhere.
The professor and his assistant Peter goes on the expedition, but Peter
is involved in selling stuff as wases and such from archeological diggings
to a gang of gweilo (western devils) criminals led by Stephen (John
Salvitti) and black brother Eddie (Michael Woods).
Stephen wants the Gold Crystal God himself, kills Peter and kidnaps
Ken Lo and Carrie Ng
Meanwhile, back in the city, the professor's daughter
Joyce/Wendy/Winnie (depends on which version you watch) played by the
Nadeki or Takajo Fujimi, wonders what happened to her
father. Fujimi Nadeki was one of the japanese actresses and martial
arts performers that
graced the Hong Kong "Girls with Guns" crime-action movies
from the Golden Era with their performances. Nadeki can be seen in i.a.
Force" too as a killer (and in that film she was the girlfriend
of Ken Lo, and not Carrie Ng as in this film).
As Joyce she's the girlfriend or possible ex-girlfriend of ex-policeman
Chi Chin Liang (Donnie Yen) and both of them plus Lisa start looking
the missing professor, and police inspector Wu (Sibelle Hu) is investigating
