      Robson C Ma Yongzhen é um rapaz que vem do interior, junto com um amigo, para tentar a sorte em Shangai. Devido ao seu temperamento explosivo e suas habilidades como lutador, ele acaba se vendo no meio da disputa de dois chefes do crime: Tan Si e Yang. Mas tira vantagem da situação e prospera. Aqui temos um clássico filme de gangsters com artes marciais. Os personagens "bonzinhos" sã poucos aqui. Mesmo Ma, cuja a principal característica é a arrogância e a mudança de cara pobre para um chefe menor de uma gangue causa mudanças nele. O filme me lembrou muito Scarface de Brian de Palma, que conta uma história parecida: a ascensão de um bandido menor em uma quadrilha até o poder total. A única diferença é que Tony Montana do Al Pacino era um psicopata cuja violência e a loucura aumentava com o seu vício em cocaína e Ma ainda tenta fazer boas ações, como deixar de cobrar proteção de pequenos comerciantes e ir atrás dos casinos e bordéis de luxo da sua região. As cenas de luta são muito bem coreografadas, sem exagero, além do grande número de atacantes. A luta final tem bastante sangue que deixaria Tarantino feliz. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 12/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Pre-Venom Mob martial arts film from director Cheh Chang finds the film's hero working his way out of poverty by traveling to Shanghai, only to find himself drawn into the criminal underworld. The Shanghai underworld looks pretty much like every other Shaw Brothers backlot set and the story and characters are not particularly compelling, but the fight sequences are excellent, particularly a wildly bloody finale, where the hero battles the main villain's minions with a hatchet lodged in his side! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member There's lots of decent fighting scenes, but the story is nothing to write home about. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member A martial arts movie with quite a good story. Plot builds up nicely and ends I a great crescendo of a fight which is among the best I've seen...a very long sequence for sure Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member some classic Kung Fu action as a young man ends up in Shanghai but is drawn to crime and gang warfare. a touch too long though Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Colorful, run-of-the-mill martial arts kung fooey. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
