it's based on the real life Miller Six folk hero, which I know nothing about, really. his uncle gets killed and he goes to Shaolin to learn kung fu for revenge. there's none of the Buddhist discussion over taking a life (well, perhaps a little, but it certainly doesn't stop the monk Tak from helping Husker in the final battle.

the DVD looks and sounds great.
except for the lame new English track. several movies of Jackie's and Sammo's have been redubbed, and they have been uniformly awful sounding. the original English dubs couldn't be unusable, could they? I am making the assumption that the movie was dubbed back in the 70s for foreign markets to enjoy (thank goodness, or there would be no fans outside of Asia) but I don't know.
