Dragon Versus Needles of Death

So Dragon Yu is a "good lad," but gets bullied a lot. Poor man. Thank goodness, he's just discovered an ability he never knew he had: being able to throw nails with deadly accuracy! Why and how, you might ask? Those questions are unwelcome in this terribly dubbed Taiwanese martial arts flick. There are many Americanised kung-fu films, but few as ridiculous and downright bad as this one. Highlights include spotting the modern home furnishings and farm machines in this film set in medieval China, marvelling at how the camera sometimes misses the action completely (including dialogues!), only to catch up clumsily again. And the nails! Why nails?
