Two Good Fights, not so Good Story for all six Venoms
21 March 2007 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

This is one of the few post "5 Deadly Venoms" to feature all "six" Venoms. Sheng Chiang, while always associated as a venom actually never played one. This film has the "Snake", Pai Wei in a supporting role as an evil bodyguard.

A very uneven film, it bends from light comedy to light seriousness without really delivering either. Some interesting plot elements are not expanded on and that's a shame. There are really only two fight scenes in the whole film, one about half way through and the other at the end for about fifteen minutes. A couple of short training scenes and an ultimately bizarre scene with the bad guys showing off their deadly techniques to a general liven things up a bit. The finale is very good but you have to wade through the very boring second half to get to it. A good portion of the movie is designed to show off the acrobatic abilities of the three actors who originally came from acrobatic troupes in Taiwan. Unfortunately the scenes are not the greatest examples of Chinese acrobatics, if you've ever had the chance to see Mainland acrobats.

Director Chang Cheh and the Venoms have all done better films. Good for Shaw fans. Known as "Shaolin Daredevils", there is nothing associated with Shaolin in this film.
