"For latecomers, Alexander Fu Sheng is NOT the star of "Brave Archer and His Mate", contrary to the DVD packaging and the Celestial trailer included on the disc. Still, Fu Sheng completists and people who love the Venoms will grab this one without hesitation, despite its flaws....According to Brian Camp, this movie was based on an adaptation of the followup to the book "Legend of the Condor Heroes" (of course, I haven't read it). Still, it appears director Cheh decided to jettison most of the characters [featured in the previous installments] because he was bored and decided on a new story featuring some of the "Venoms" group. The results are obvious; those of us who went from buying "BA" to "BA&HM" got quite a jar! The fight choreography of the 3 "Venoms", plus the "baby Venoms" in attendance, saves the film from derailment. Kuo Chui is a good choice for replacing Fu Sheng, BUT Fu Sheng should not be here, period, though his prescence is welcome (he has his moments, and his last line must SOMEHOW sum up his working with Cheh). This Well Go USA release is one of their better releases, the only flaw being that the English subtitles come with the Chinese subtitles on, TOO! It blocks the screen a bit, but it's not excessive.The original Mandarin dub is NOT doctored with!"
