During the Chinese Revolution, Robin Hood-like petty thief & martial arts master Meng Kang (David Chiang) & gambler & martial arts master Tieh (Ti Lung) are hired by revolutionary Wan to steal 3,000 rifles from the fort of evil warlord Chin to arm the rebels. With the help of  a railroad engine supplied by the rebels, 2 trucks supplied by Kang Meng's girlfriend, the bossy & stubborn Pepper, daughter of the customs officer, who of course joins them in their heist, & with commander Liu, whom they have abducted from a brothel & force to do their bidding, they enter the fort, & - after almost bungling the whole thing up - do get the weapons, heading South by railway, always with Chin's soldiers close behind them.

& when after some serious fights, in which both Wan & their hostage Liu lose their lives, they actually succeed to shake off the enemy, their train gets derailed too., & it is a small miracle they adctually manage to hide the carriage carrying the weapons inside the house it crashed into.

Searching for Wan's revolutionary associates to hand them over the weapons does not prove too easy too, as first they are set up & almost killed by the criminal Yen & his gang, who could put the weapons to good (sinister use), then Meng Kang is even coaught by Chin's men, & when he persuades Chin to gamble for his freedom & actually wins & is set free, he does not realize soon enough it is only one of Chin's tricks to get to the weapons after all.

But Tieh & Pepper did meanwhile succeed in finding the real revolutionaries, & tell them the whereabouts of the rifles ... & now all that is left for Kang Meng, Tieh & Pepper to do is to fight of Chin's army violently, valiantly, anonymously & to the death.

 

Even though the subject of this movie is rather serious & garnered with a high bodycount, with even all the leads in the end biting the dust riddled by bullets, Chang Cheh's approach to it proves very lighthearted, almost comedic, for a change. That doesn't mean though that the action is any less gripping (fighting instructor  Lau Kar Leung might be a good indicator for that) or Chang Cheh has lost sight of his favourite ingredients like honour, loyalty & male friednship/bonding, he just does not take himself too seriously that time around - which is nice.
