"You know how some movies are so absolutely worthless that they end up being mind numbingly brilliant? That is Fatal Flying Guillotines. The fight scenes...silly and comical and poorly choreographed...the acting...ahahah...the acting...ahahahahahahahha....it really is amazing...the dubbing helps too...it adds a whole new level to the bad/goodness of this flick. the story? do you really need a story? the main character in this movie has a "technique" that basically consists of flying giant bells on ropes out to sever people's heads, because his heart condition has driven him insane. I think I've said enough. Now you need to purchase this so you can show it to your friend and impress them with your knowledge of little known, yet devastatingly funny "kung fu" movies. cuz im not really sure this is kung fu. Its bell fu. Look at me, still rambling. Anyways...buy this."

"This is a kung fu classic. The Emperor has one of his henchmen create a weapon which is thrown thru the air, lands on someone's head and beheads them. He then has a dozen killers trained to use it, and starts executing people. After a few killings one of the trained killers decides he wants out, and the hunt is on to kill him.The movie has some jerky-ness to it, as the film they used was not in great shape, but for those who watched kung fu theartre on saturday afternoons as a kid this is a must have. Second only to Jade Claw."

"Being the mark that I am for movie gimmicks, I purchased this film in hopes of seeing more of the flying guillotine which I have become so fond of over the years. ... It's nothing more than a jug attached to a chain. Granted, we're talking about a flying guillotine but come on. If you want to see a real flying guillotine movie, wait a month or so and watch "master of the flying guillotine." I beleive it comes out into theatres next month."
