A ban­dit (Lo Lieh) finds his vi­o­lent edge soft­ened by the in­no­cence of his new­found lady love (Li Ching). But first, there’s this lit­tle mat­ter of re­venge against his for­mer part­ner who left him to the cops. You were ex­pect­ing this to be about a doc­tor framed for killing his wife by a one-armed man? Nuh-uh, in Shaw Stu­dios the one-armed dude is the hero. This 1972 spaghetti western – if I say “lo mein eastern”, will I have to go for sen­si­tiv­ity train­ing? – also stars Ku Feng, Dean Shek and Sammo Hung in a bit part.
