• 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

    Feb 26, 2015

    Unfortunately ‘The Brave Archer’ is one of Chang Cheh’s least assured efforts as he foolishly tries to fit in all of the sub-plots and characters of this vast novel.

  • 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 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.

  • 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 New Shaolin Boxers

    May 4, 2015

    A splendid, fight packed romp that is a must for any fan of Fu Sheng. In fact it’s probably a must for any fan of kung fu films.

  • 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.

  • Treasure Hunt

    Jun 16, 2015

    This fun, frothy and occasionally full on violent concoction mashes so many genres together its surprising ‘Treasure Hunt’ turned out this well made, coherent and well, entertaining.

  • Zen Of Sword

    Jul 1, 2015

    ‘Zen of Sword’ has plenty of plot twists, but not so much as to make it convoluted. Performances are good, and the action handled primarily by Kuo Chui pleases.
