(de) wrote: What a spectacular movie. Now a days there realy isn't many new ideas to film making...but this one is compleatly unique. Told in such a daring and grounbreaking way and very entertaining. I saw this on the big screen at a film festival in Chicago...very good.
(nl) wrote: The absolute masterpiece of Hong Kong crime action and a milestone of Hong Kong New Wave cinema. Its flowing evolution and sharp, quick editing are almost a miracle. It's not too much to say that almost all Hong Kong action films made later than this one are influenced by this. It produced Johnnie To, of course, and even Quentin Tarantino (he is strongly influenced by this film in making "Reservoir Dogs"). The last gunfight between criminals and cops setting in a Hong Kong's legendary place Kawloon Castle is very powerful and thrilling. AMAZING.

I have had the Roy Ayers soundtrack to this Blaxploitation film for a long time, and finally had gotten around to watching this, and I gotta say, I enjoyed it a lot. Typically, a lot of the exploitation films from the 70s are enjoyable more because of the irony and or the excessive nudity/violence contained within...but this had something else. Well actually, it also had excessive nudity and violence and a kicking soundtrack and all of the things you'd normally expect, but its some of the coolest excessive nudity and violence you'll witness in ages...trust me. Did I mention that Pam Grier is hotness personified in this?

The lines are occasionally funny so for all Woody Allen fans, they get what they have expected. Oscars must have really liked Woody alot back then. For a lesser accomplished film, he was nominated for directing and writing. The plot can be easily summed up as 'the day when everything went wrong for Danny Rose'. Some of the funny parts are over-the-top but for one particular scene, I was laughing out loud. One mobster fires at Woody and Mia Forrow but instead hits a helium tank and they all start talking like chipmunks. Rating: C+
