 This kung fu flick directed by Shaw Brothers Studios' famous Chang Cheh(director of a bunch of the best Shaws' all-time classics) starts out a bit slow but is worth sticking around for when it gets down to bone-breaking action. It's definitely a unique setting for a martial arts extravaganza with it taking place in(and being partially filmed in) Korea right after the end of The Korean War involving some vets trying to get on with their lives. Gangsters, hookers and a groovy bar with go-go dancers apparently make this very difficult to do. The 4 main heroes here are supposed to represent the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse but not being a biblical scholar myself I'm not sure what significance that really has to the overall film. What I did appreciate though was the great fight scenes which included a guy getting his scalp ripped off, a prostitute taking a dart in the eyeball and lots more chopsocky action  sequences that take place in some unusual settings. AKA STRIKE 4 REVENGE and HELLFIGHTERS OF THE EAST
