The movie directed by Lin Fu-Ti, is a kind of Chinese version of the famous Japanese series, Lone Wolf and Cub. Although it’s highy inspired by Lone Wolf, it reminds me Spy vs Spy series, much more. I guess this is because Yueh Hua mostly dressed in white, while Phillip Ko Fei always in black (Even their hats similar with the Spies’s hats in there), and always fight each other. Anyway. By the way, Even he seems always playing in supported role after about ~1975 in his career, it is really quite interesting and funny to see Yueh Hua as in leading role in such movie….

Master and The kid

Kahramanımız (Yueh Hua) devlet adına çalışan bir “aksiyon” adamıdır. Bir gün gene işini gücünü yaparken güçlü bir kanunsuzun (Chan Sing) oğlunun yakalanıp idam edilmesine vesile olur. Bunun üzerine, intikam olarak, kahramanımızın tüm ailesinin katledilir ve geriye sadece küçük yeğeni kalır. İşte Böylelikle, artık kahramanımızın küçük yeğeni ile çıkacağı tehlikeli bir intikam macerası başlar. Maceraları sırasında elbette bir çok engel ve zorlukla karşılaşan kahramanımız sonunda ailesinin kanını yerde bırakmayacaktır.

Yönetmen Lin Fu-Ti‘den, ünlü japon serisi Yalnız Kurtun bir nevi çin versiyonu olan bu filmin kendine göre kafa ve eğlendirici bir havası var. İlk izlenimde sanki Yalnız Kurt serisinden aşırı etkilenilmiş gibi görünse de, bana sanki Spy vs Spy serisini anımsattı. Sanırım bunda, Yueh Hua‘nın hep beyaz, ve Phillip Ko Fei‘nin da hep siyah giyinmiş olması (üstelik şapkalarda Spy vs Spy’dakiler gibi geniş stilde), ve birbirlerine sanki zıt ama eş bir profilde oynamalarının rolü büyük. Gerçi Spy vs Spy ‘da casuslar yenişemiyordu ama bu filmde bir kazanan var elbette ;) . Ayrıca ~1975’den sonra genellikle yardımcı oyuncu olarak gözüken Yueh Hua’yı böyle çizgi dışı bir projede görmek de gayet eğlenceliydi. Altyazı Almanca dublajlı olan video’nun çubuğunda….  İngilizce dublajlı izlemek isteyen bu videoya baksın… İyi seyirler  ! ^_^

  1. Loved this one and you have to wonder if they were influenced by spy vs’ spy or maybe the other way around. Also the sound effects and music in the english dub had me laughing all the way though… especially the american soap opera music played during love scenes. Finally the touch of cuteness the little tag along nephew added was so charming, matching costumes even!!! All smiles (^ω^)

  2. I guess the similarities between spy vs’ spy may be most probably coincidence. Because there is already a ying yang concept in the east culture, and they might try to use this concept in there, But as a result, it resemble spy vs spy unconsciously. Still no matter what, the movie is really entertaining ! ^_^
