Movie Reviews

TOO MANY CRY BABIES HAVE REVIEWED THIS CLASSIC!!!
Johnny Palliser | So Cal. | 03/30/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It seems their are way too many cry babies, who have reviewed this cult classic. It seems that they are reviewing the bad and bootleg prints of this film from Director Chang Cheh. The "official" release is the Dragon Dynasty dvd release that has been digitally remastered by Celestial Pictures... Celestial Pictures owns the entire Shaw Brothers catalog and has currently released over half of the 850 films produced by the Shaw Brothers film studios... The Dragon Dynasty released is in widescreen format, and has the original cantonese soundtrack as well as the english dubbed version. the picture quality and sound is perfect, in fact better than the original release... If it is not the Dragon Dynasty release then don't buy it!

My review is simple... this is one of the greatest martial arts films ever produced. This was the film that made the "venoms", including Kuo Chue, Lo Meng, Lu Feng and Chiang Sheng... The fight scenes are very well done, and edge of your seat. This is a true masterpiece of the genre, and has been copied many times but never equalled! A true must see and a must own!

Note: There is talk of a re-make of this classic in the works... How will the new version compare to the original, only time will tell."
A classic - Must Watch!
Kevin Theiss | St Louis, MO | 03/21/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Watching this again brings me back to when I first saw it as a child. The new commentary with cinema expert Bey Logan makes it even more enjoyable to watch. Some people may comment on the fact that it is not non-stop fighting from start to finish... I think the plot of this movie is strong enough to not require an over abundance of fighting, CGI or wire work that many films rely on these days.

I heard rumors of a remake of this movie.... please, leave this one alone, I don't think you can remake this classic without getting extremely harsh criticism."
