Chinese Godfather

This lurid, long-lost martial arts flick comes to us from the height of the chopsocky era. The film is not available on video and has rarely been seen since its 1974 stateside release. The story concerns a musclebound country bumpkin (buff brawler Wu Chin) who becomes a pawn in a turn-of-the-century turf war between two nasty (and we mean nasty) criminal kingpins. The mind-boggling finale takes place in what appears to be "The Forest of Endless Deathtraps." This one is bloody, sleazy and filled with near-psychedelic fisticuffs. Guaranteed to leave you dazed and confused. (But in a good way.) 90 minutes
