Relic from another era even in 1977
7 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Duel in the Desert or its Chinese title Proud Horses in Flying Sand should tell you something about this movie. If the producers thought that this was a cool title, then they must be from another era.

I've seen this in English dubbed version, so I probably didn't get the true content of the movie, but even then, I could see that this movie had very little production value to it. Perhaps this movie was made for the mainland Chinese. The overall content only makes sense in this context, because even in 1977 nobody in Hong Kong would be impressed with this movie.

The movie is typical kung fu movie in that it's just a series of poorly done fight scenes. Most actors I've never seen before or since. They were able to hire Angela Mao, so why they didn't make her the center piece of the movie I have no idea. She gets third billings to actors with lot less on screen presence, and also does a poorly choreographed fight scenes.

There are much better produced movies starring Angela Mao and it's recommended that you spend time on them rather than on this one.
