James Clayton’s review:
Early John Woo kung fu Shaolin action satisfaction! Historical chopsocky showcase for ensemble Hong Kong martial arts legend whack-arounds and team-ups to take down oppressive anti-Shaolin villainy! Jackie Chan wields the Little Eagle God Lance in style! Sammo Hung packs punch as a dastardly henchman with hilarious buck-teeth! Who cares about a slight, formulaic plot when there's this much nascent star power on display and Seventies Shaolin showdown fun to soak up?!
