Time Out says

Nominally a remake of the old Shaw Brothers/Wang Yu One-Armed Boxer, this is actually a (not very) original story: a young man discovers belatedly that he should be out avenging the father he never knew, loses an arm while rescuing a girl from kidnappers, and trains himself to overcome his handicap so as to confront the worst of the bad guys in the final reel. As rife with continuity errors and other signs of haste as most latter-day Tsui Hark movies, this is chiefly notable for its emphasis on naked male flesh; the girl's first-person voice-over is there to deflect suspicions of homo-eroticism.
