One Of His Best
28 March 2008 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

I am not a big fan of the Five Venoms movies, as in many cases they seem to lighthearted for my taste (Killer Army, Nine Demons), but this one, despite the silliness, acrobatics, and clowning around, is one of the exceptions to the rule, and that is due to the exciting fight sequences sprinkled throughout.

Just fast-forward through all the silliness, and watch the fights. You'll like it as much I did. The acting, choreography, sets, and new weapons are a joy to watch. Love the hand-held trident-like daggers! The final fight sequence is brutal, exciting, and interesting to watch, and all the actors do a great job in their roles, particularly the star of the film.

The Five Venoms didn't always score, but they certainly do this time. Highly recommended for those into the genre.
