The Brave Lion (1974)

Two Chinese POWs seek freedom and fortune by mixing up the locals at a lumber yard occupied by the Japanese during World War II. But the guards fail to consider the consequences of Barry Wai’s kung fu chops, who doesn’t take kindly to foreign oppression and plans a little uprising of his own. The film ends with 30 minutes of constant fighting which is an arduous process given the film’s distinct lack of imagination, but you would have lost the will to live by then anyway. And never trust a film set during the war where the majority of the cast are wearing safari shirts and flared jeans.
