Storyline

The Chinese styles of two schools, the tiger and the crane, have been split for many years. No one can determine which technique is the best, nevertheless the two schools musts put away past differences and combine as one so that they can defeat the iron skinned Manchu (Lung Fei) with Japanese backing if they want to save China from Japanese domination.

Even with fight choreography by Liu Chia-yung, "The Savage Killers" marked a steep plunge into mediocrity for former superstar Wang Yu. Having been the top banana in Hong Kong's first million-dollar grossing film ("The One-Armed Swordsman") for Shaw Brothers Studio and then putting its emerging rival Golden Harvest on the map, Wang was directing himself in independently-produced Taiwanese cheapies by the middle of the Me Decade. This film, a standard revenge melodrama in which practitioners of the tiger and crane styles join forces to defeat a common foe, is representative of the downward trend of its star's career: the fight scenes are competent but short and uninspired, and Wang looks like he'd rather be somewhere else. Liu Chia-yung does double duty in a supporting role, while Lung Fei's broad, mustache-twirling portrayal of the villain is the film's only real bright spot. (Future "Five Deadly Venoms" star Kuo Chui, aka Philip Kwok, has a very small bit part; blink and you'll miss him.) Four and a half stars.
