Spot on mate-it never lets up! Constant action.
No CGI in these days!

Yeah Lazenby on fire that was hilarious-didn't look like a stuntman to me either.In fact at one poit he struggles to get the jacket off!

According to BTS's recent interview in The Dark Side the above scene was indeed not supposed to happen that way and said slip-up was simply left in the film!

Not just that (I'm trying not to be spoilerific) but when he's got a mouthful too

Same as the split in Grant Page's trousers, just makes the film all the more endearing!

Damn right and that fight scene between Wang Yu and Page is hilarious! More or less everything goes but the proverbial kitchen sink!

Those bullet ricochet sound FX (Kee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee!) and rapid zoom lens shots in the final reel are amusing too.

And what about Wang Yu's battle with two opponents outside Lazenby's Martial Arts Dojo? One of whom looks like a Denim-clad Bigfoot!

"This is Australia mate, not bloody Fifty-Five Days At Peking!"

"Heeeey, don't give me any s***!"

Indeed, perfect exploitation. A great dvd. well worth the import tax.
Brian Trenchard-Smith is a fabulous, underrated director.
