The Skinny: Lam Ching-Ying's Taoist crimefighting makes for great fun.
by Kozo:
     This fun flick from the eighties features Lam Ching-Ying as a modern-day cop with Taoist monk methods. He’s enlisted by Wu Ma to track down a mysterious drug dealer who’s using dead bodies to do her dealing. Along the way, Lam gets saddled with a brash young partner (Wilson Lam) who doesn’t believe in all this Taoist stuff. However, he changes his tune when he discovers the powers that their evil adversary has - and she’s a Japanese drug kingpin played by Michiko Nishikawa. The action scenes are fun (as one would expect from Stephen Tung), and the cultural connections are cool-as-can-be. Lam’s Taoist detective methods are worth the price of the rental alone. An entertaining movie. (Kozo 1996)
