A venom must have!
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This is a classic venoms tale of brotherhood and loyalty, what venoms films are all about, and if you're a true venom fan, this is a must have. Packed with great fighting scenes and one of the best ending fight scenes I have ever seen, this is a movie no kung fu fan should be without."
Old school Venoms action, but not at their peak.

"This DVD has all of your Shaw Bros favortie actors, they gathered everyone for this battle! The final battle has about a dozen fighters-- none of which are the lowly henchmen type, its a full on battle of skilled warriors. Even better, they use lots of different weapons as well, building up to the final battle with the master spearman.Still, despite having plenty of fighters and lots of weapons, the action in this DVD is not spectacular. Lots of the punches and kicks are performed slower than you'd expect, making it look like their not really fighting at all. Also, the camera is often way too close to the action for you to really appreciate the skills being displayed.There are also some other strange elements that make their way into the film including a master teaching how to fight with a bowl and chopsticks. It might sound kind of cool, but it ends up looking foolish on-screen, when the student uses the chopsticks to fight against a swordsman. I'd recommend only to the die hard Shaw Bros fan."

"this movie has nice fighting scenes but not cheh changs best work thats why I gave it a 3 star rating. I was only 10 years old when Black Belt Theater came on the scene on channel 11, though the titles of the movies are fuzzy to me, I do remember seeing this one. If you are a die hard fan of this genre like me you would know from seeing this movie it isn't the best of the genre but still it has it's moments. It doesn't compare to master killer, 5 venoms, 4 assassins, and super ninjas but still if your a hard shaw bros. fan add this to your collection!"
THIS MOVIE DESERVES BETTER

"This is a terrific movie starting in the second third of the film. My problem is with the format and presentatiion. This Venom movie features some of the best fight choreography of the classic Shaw Brothers quality and some company should issue a remastered wide screen edition of it. This version is full screen with muddy colors and dull picture quality. If there is another version of this movie --buy that."
