"The special effects are horrible and the eighties look is outdated. The stunts are horrible. The makeup effects are horrible. All those I just mentioned are just typical of the generation age. There's tackiness in the negative points mentioned. The dancing and the workout scene was cool because I wanted to be there. I loved how the character of Body had knife points that would pop out of her black thigh high boots. The Chinese vases scene was funny with the breaking and the Frenchman hanging on to all his precious artifacts. The Mime/ghost was really cool with his miming ghostliness. Compared to the other Martial Arts movies I wouldn't recommend this one to see ever.
The artwork on the front of the DVD cover is rather fake and misleading as it doesn't fit the content of the movie. The back of the DVD cover is the same."

"I had looked very much forward to watching "Twin Daggers". I am still glad I watched it, but it would not have been a terrible loss had I let it pass. I enjoy Lion's Gate films. They usually are fairly-well done and the action is not bad, but borders on ridiculous at times. "Twin Daggers" was all of this.
I almost turned it off about 15 minutes into it. I decided to let it run so I didn't have to get up from the couch and change movies :-) Because of that, I did get to see the improvements that came along a few minutes later. The acting is still poor, the fx poor, and the martial arts were okay. I watched the plot. The plot was good, got better, and finished up just fine. Lots of twists and turns (a lot predictable, but some not so much), which I like.
Bottom line: If you like movies that are a bit over the top, acting barely good enough, and a decent plot, go ahead. If you have to be spellbound throughout and all the bells and whistles have to be great, ahhhh...no."

"This movie has a Great twist in the Story. I thought it was Great. If you like kung-fu you will enjoy this movie."
