"MANTIS VS. FALCON CLAWS- This is your typical Godfrey Ho movie. It doesn't make much sense, the ending is horrible, and it's only 77 minutes long.
The kung fu is above average at times. One of the henchman is a really good acrobat and Chia Kai's fight with the villain is the highlight of the movie. Chia Kai plays the drunken master teacher in this and is amazing in every movie he is in. He owns 'Dance of Death' playing the white haired villain and plays the kung fu teacher in 'Seven Steps of Kung Fu' and 'Of Cooks and Kung Fu'. Unfortunately, he only has that one fight scene in this. The rest of the movie is very bad but saved by some good cheesiness. It's a fun movie to watch for bad movie lovers.
DRAGON VS. NEEDLES OF DEATH- I can't even begin to describe how bad this is. Some kid who can throw nails is always getting bullied. He teams up with some guy he works with and they go around fighting people. The story is one of the most dreadful things I have ever sat through. There is some quality basher action, but the final fight goes on for about ten minutes too long! I won't spoil the ending, but it is beyond stupid and I didn't even get a laugh out of it.
Both movies have bad but watchable picture quality."
