This kung-fu/action film is of more than usual interest because the leading character, who was portrayed as an ordinary citizen fed-up with official inaction against crime, was unacceptable to the Hong Kong Government; they had extra footage added to the film to show that he was an undercover cop all along. The filmmaker got around this by dropping the curtain on these last few minutes of the picture. In the story, Hong Kong restaurateur Boss Cheng is a sort of one-man justice squad, taking on all sorts of bad guys before they can harm his community. When he is injured in a fight with an ex-con, the community rallies to help him, for he has become a local hero.
