Chivalry and Venoms and a bit of a drag
6 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Five words you never want to hear (or read as subtitles) in a martial arts movie, "He left without a fight." Unfortunately this movie contains those words. It starts plot heavy with dangerous character building on more dangerous character coming in out of the rain. Why this was not an inn instead of a private home I don't get. Once the players are introduced then there is a flashback. The two main weaknesses of the film are the flip flopping in time and lack of a lead focus. Now about the fights. It's the Venoms and they deliver with weapons. For a two hour movie it is just not quite enough action though. The chivalry however is outstanding. Such politeness and manners between adversaries is quite enjoyable to watch. Overall though I can't rate the movie any higher than an average six out of ten.
