123 SB SWORDSPLAY '70s : ' The Long Chase '

‘ The Long Chase ‘

Cast : Li Ching, Yue Hua, Lo Lieh
Director : Ho Meng-hua


A simple ‘ police and thief ‘ tale ! A constable was tasked to arrest an assassin who had killed a minister. However when he confronted the murderer, he was conned by an innkeeper’s daughter that the latter was her cousin and an official in the town. That aroused his suspicion to investigate further ….

An excellent thriller packed with fast and furious actions . Engaging performances from the leads especially Yue Hua and Lo Lieh as a witty fugitive and a righteous constable. Thumps up !

Rating : 4 stars of 5

This is literally a "cat and mouse" chase, I enjoyed watching Yueh Hua pulling Lo Lieh's leg. It's a very enjoyable film!
