Thousand Mile Escort (HK 1976)

Rating: *
Cast: Judy Lee (Chia Ling), Lo Lieh, Pai Ying

Awful! This overly confusing low budget Taiwanese disaster is impossible to follow, and steals a lot of its material from the superb Japanese "Lone Wolf And Cub" (1972) series. Our hero is a bad-ass kung fu guy who pushes around an orphan boy in a cart. He's trying to deliver a letter to the prime minister (?), but he finds that revenge is his true calling. Poorly made, and the kung fu isn't that great either. The only bright spots are a couple of scenes where kung fu diva Judy Lee gets to dish out some punishment, but she sadly doesn't see nearly enough action. It also has the absolute WORST dubbing I've EVER heard. Too damn bad.
