Female martial-arts star Angela Mao is top-billed in When Taekwondo Strikes. The scene is Korea; the time is WW II. A group of resistance fighters, led by Mao, do their best to decimate the ranks of the occupying Japanese troops. Pity the poor Japanese: all they have to defend themselves is high-tech weaponry. Anne Winton co-stars in this above-the-norm actioner. Filmed in 1973, When Taekwondo Strikes earned an American release 10 years later -- and its first U.S. TV showing some five years after that. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Great buy for Martial Arts fansAugust 11, 2014
This is a terrific way to be introduced to one of Asia's greatest martial arts movie heroines. Sometimes called Lady Kung Fu, Lady Whirlwind, or just AMY, Angela Mao Ying is simply great in these and many other movies. Her very expressive eyes aid her fine acting ability. And her fast, crisp martial arts moves are impressive to say the least. The movies here are very nicely restored by the production company. Broken Oath and The Tournament are two of the star's best and lesser seen films. A Queen's Ransom is the only one that feels like it doesn't belong; too bad they couldn't have gone with Dance of Death or one of several others. Still, a fine bargain and a nice showcase for this amazing woman.
I would recommend this to a friend
