If there’s anything that sets the films of Bobby Suarez apart from the films of Cirio Santiago, it’s that most of them make some sort of sense, at least relative to the universe about which we’re talking.

While the novelty value alone is enough to make the fight scenes memorable, it should be noted that Weng Weng trained in martial arts from an early age and received extensive stunt training
