"All the Shaw Bros stars in one movie: the 5 Venoms, Ti Lung, Fu Sheng, etc. The story is told largely in flashback, which makes it a bit tough to follow at times, but the quality of martial arts is great."
Ten Tigers from Kwangtung

"Wow, Wow, Wow! You will not be disappointed at all with this old school flick! You will see the top ten Venom Mob stars in this one. They team up to deliver an awesome old school hit. The fighting scenes are mob classics, nothing short here. But hold your stomachs, because this is filled with major blood baths, gutts being spilled out and awesome hand to hand combat, sword and pole fighting scenes. You will feature some of the best fighting scenes here. This is typical of the mob classics that I'm used to. This flick is filled with action all the way through.
The plot begins early with treachery, rivalry and trickery as the Venoms team up to guard one of their heroes and get him safely out of the country. In the beginning, the Ten Tigers were tricked into fighting each other, thus giving into the plans of the evil officials. Soon, they discover they were being tricked and used to lure their hero out in the open to be killed. The Ten Tigers soon came together and planned their strategies for sneaking their hero out of the country. Without giving too much away, they met up with strong opposition - from those seeking revenge to the crooked officials seeking to do away with the famous hero and kill off the Ten Tigers at the same time. Those seeking revenge knew that they were no match for the Ten Tigers (together they were too strong) so they resorted to a scheme of trying to kill them off one by one by isolating them. Alone, each Tiger was more manageable to deal with.
This flick is awesome and a must have for real Venom Mob fans. This is worth having. You can't go wrong!!!!"

"The Ten Tigers is actually based on a true story. Great use of Northern Styles, as well as forms and fighting based on the Southern Style 5 Animals system. Throw the Venoms in the Mix and you have a great Kung Fu Classic!!!"
