Clans of Intrigue
6 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

I'm glad to see that the reviews on here are of "Clans of Intrigue". If you made it all the way through Brian Camp's review you will see at the end that he added that Clans of Intrigue was the title when he wrote the review but now IMDb has changed it to Legend of the Bat. I don't know why either Brian...

"Clans of Intrigue" was released in Hong Kong on 03/05/1977 and "Legend of the Bat" (aka Clans of Intrigue 2) was released on 07/08/1978.

That's right, "also known as "Clans of Intrigue 2", Legend of the Bat is a sequel to "Clans of Intrigue"... Lung Ti resumes his same role in this but Hua Yueh comes back as a different character.

Anyway... This page is for reviews of Clans of Intrigue. So, there's not much I can add that hasn't already been said.

I hope that IMDb fixes this error and makes a "Legend of the Bat (aka Clans of Intrigue 2) 1978" page so I can write a review on it (Its as good as Clans).

Ooops... I just found it... IMDb has it listed under its other alias name aka "Bat Island Adventures" (1978). Well, they still need to remove this Legend of the Bat cover from this page and return it to Clans of Intrigue like it originally was and should be....
