Movie Reviews

All time favorite Shaw flick
J. Yoo | Bergen County, NJ, USA | 06/09/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For as long as I can remember, this film, a.k.a. Can Que, has had a deep impact on my view towards Martial Arts Cinema. I'm sure anyone would agree the fight choreography, plot, and lighting are all superectile. Philip Kwok's portrayal of a man who loses his eyesight to Tu Chan (played marvelously by Feng Lu) nearly brought me to tears. His journey towards a higher awareness employing his other senses erupts in an all out spectacular training sequence with Retard (supremely acted by Sheng Chiang). The films climactic end is the lengthy battle between the avenging cripples and superectal antagonist Tu Tin Tao (Kwan Tai Chen) showcasing the acrobatic abilities of all these fine gentlemen. If you have nothing better to do today, go out and pick this DVD up immediately."
The most incredible physical stunts ever!

"First off, the REAL name of this movie is "Crippled Avengers." I guess some marketing dweeb thought he could sell more videos if he changed the title. Therefore, the plot of this movie has nothing to do with "The 5 Deadly Venoms" (but it does feature 4 of the same actors). 5DV has a better plot actually. The storyline of Crippled Avengers is pretty silly, but it's good to laugh, right? The gore is so fake and funny. But to the point--it doesn't matter whether you believe these guys are crippled or not, they are amazingly talented, they're wonderful acrobats and martial artists, and a joy to watch in action! This film does a much better job of showcasing their skills than 5DV does. No digital effects here, Baby!!!"
EXCELLENT MOVIE

"RETURN OF THE 5 DEADLY VENOMS IS FAR SUPERIOR TO ITS ORIGINAL. THE 5 DEADLY VENOMS IS GREAT AS WELL, BUT AT TIMES THE STORY LINE MAKES THE MOVIE SEEM JUST A TAD DRAWN OUT, BUT IT STILL RANKS AS ONE OF THE BEST MARTIAL ARTS FILMS EVER MADE. BOTH ARE A MUST HAVE IN YOUR COLLECTION. 5 STAR A+ MOVIES. GREAT ACTION SEQUENCES, EXTRAORDINARY STUNTS, ALONG WITH A GOOD SCRIPT MAKE THESE MOVIES EXCEPTIONAL. PICTURE QUALITY IS EXCELLENT ON DVD. TRUE MARTIAL ARTS FANS GRAB A COPY OF RETURN OF THE FIVE DEADLY VENOMS ON DVD & THE 5 DEADLY VENOMS ON VHS(ONLY AVAILABLE ON VHS AT THIS POINT)."
The Venoms are back ---with a vengeance!

"The film (aka Crippled Avengers, aka Mortal Combat) brings back the core ensemble actors (not characters) from "The 5 Deadly Venoms." Otherwise, this film has nothing whatsoever to do with the "original." Not a problem. The film is spectacular in its own right. Contains abundant and endless awesome fights. The main stars here have been "crippled" by an evil boss. The stars, with their handicaps, have to develop special skills to beat the evil boss. Not nearly as intriguing and majestic as "5 Deadly Venoms," the movie still delivers the goods. The crippled fighters, especially the crippled "idiot," bring a comedic undertone and overtone to the film, which I found a slight but forgiveable distraction. Also, compared to the original, the violence is more sadistic and gratuitious, another slight distraction. Having said all that, the movie is still a top-shelf classic 70s style original action-packed film with all your favorite recognizeable stars. This is a must-have to your collection."
