Where is everybody?

I'm not sure whether I wasn't paying attention or whether this film really is as confusing as it seemed, because I couldn't figure what was going on for much of the time. Better known in the UK as 18 Shaolin Riders, this is a typical 70s/80s chop-socky epic with perhaps a bigger budget than most. The plot revolves around a band of Robin Hood type riders who steal from the rich to give to the poor, but who are infiltrated by a master criminal from whom they once stole a knife. Or something. There's some carp involved as well, but I really can't be bothered to go there. As if the plot wasn't bad enough, the UK DVD is atrocious: the one I watched was mostly dubbed (as badly as these flicks always are) but for some reason it would revert to subtitles – in mid-conversation sometimes. It's as if a couple of versions have been spliced together, and I'm not entirely sure all the reels are in the right order. Unless you're a die-hard chop-socky fan – and there are some decent fight scenes – avoid this one.
