• Crippled Avengers

    Mar 3, 2015

    This is probably one of the most acrobatic Venoms films as they participate in some extremely complicated routines that are brilliantly put together.

  • Flag Of Iron

    Mar 14, 2015

    ‘Flag Of Iron’ is a good film in nearly all of its departments and therefore earns a strong recommendation.

  • Heaven And Hell

    Oct 4, 2017

    ‘Heaven and Hell’ is actually a whole lot more interesting, and engaging, than one would outwardly expect from its (largely) negative reputation.

  • Invincible Shaolin

    Mar 30, 2015

    Chang Cheh weaves intrigue into the plot along with a clear sense of humanity and even humour.

  • Masked Avengers

    Apr 21, 2015

    Although this isn’t the best Venoms film, it certainly isn’t the worst and still features a hundred reasons why it should be recommended viewing.

  • Shaolin Rescuers

    May 23, 2015

    Although an above average kung-fu flick (as you’d expect from Chang Cheh) this is one of the weakest of the Venoms films.

  • Ten Tigers Of Kwantung

    Jun 10, 2015

    The final word is that this is highly recommended for the teaming of fifteen or so of the top stars of the Shaw Brothers era. As a stand-alone production though, ‘Ten Tigers Of Kwantung’ is not Chang Cheh’s best.

  • The Brave Archer 2

    Feb 26, 2015

    It can not be regarded as a classic of the genre, but can be hailed as a valiant attempt at faithfully adapting difficult source material.

  • The Brave Archer 3

    Feb 26, 2015

    The three films are of course better if viewed as one long film, but that is partially the undoing of this third instalment due to it’s comparatively slow pacing following the hectic earlier instalments.

  • The Daredevils

    Mar 5, 2015

    ‘The Daredevils’ is a fine opportunity to savour a great team of performers who always appear to be so comfortable together.

  • The Kid With The Golden Arm

    Apr 3, 2015

    Not as plot driven or character based as ‘Five Venoms’, ‘The Kid With The Golden Arm’ concentrates on the stylish action that dominates its running time.

  • The Rebel Intruders

    Apr 3, 2015

    Alongside ‘Invincible Shaolin’, ‘The Rebel Intruders’ ranks as one of the best of the Venoms’ films and one of their most realised.

  • Two Champions Of Shaolin

    Jun 19, 2015

    What starts off in a very prosaic and none too exciting manner quickly develops into another winning entry in the Venoms’ pantheon.
