I saw this film a couple of times when it was on Black Belt Theater. I think the thing I remember most about Boxer Rebellion was the fight scene at the end of the movie, between Alexander Fu Sheng, and foreign soldiers: who were armed with rifles and bayonettes, while Fu sheng took them on bare handed. I didn't care if the soldiers whose butts were getting kicked were white or not, I just wanted to see Fu sheng kick some butt. But I agree, Chinese martial art's films tend to steriotype the Russians, and the Japanese, and other nationalities too. You tend to expected that in Chinese films, especially with the Japanese, because the two countries had a propaganda war going on between them. I don't know if Bloody Avengers was a good movie or not, Maybe it had too much sugar in it for a kung fu movie. If thats the case, then it was crap. I just remember that Fu sheng was in it.
