If I get killed that's my affair but if I should think you despise me why then I'd just lie here and die..
21 July 2002 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Pacifist village is beset by bandits in this low budget yet lyrical martial arts thriller: One beauty of a film that benefits from simplistic storytelling and nicely drawn characterizations. Underrated Chang Cheh film utilizes some sets and actors from his classic 'Duel Of The Iron Fist' and the isolated seaside setting of the village adds much to the atmosphere of the proceedings. Despite bad dubbing, ultra simply storyline and an almost austere production design 'Savage Five' hands down rivals the ornateness of 'Kid With The Golden Arm' and the twist heavy 'Five Deadly Venoms'. The always great David Chiang plays a lesser version of his Rover character from 'Duel Of The Iron Fist' and Ti Lung, looking incredible here, is at his physical best. Accolades to Chen Kuan (Guan) Tai and Wang Chung (Cheung) in great sympathetic roles too. Kung Fu classic where the actual martial arts display takes a backseat to the mesmerizing story. This review is based on the cut 96 minute t.v. print I have. A Chinese film to cherish!
