ZODIAC FIGHTERS is an obscure, cheap, Taiwanese kung fu fantasy movie based around the twelve signs of the Chinese zodiac. The rag-tag storyline sees female fighter Polly Shang Kwan coming up against a ruthless warlord and into possession of a magical sword, but the main thrust of the narrative involves twelve fighters, each of whom are embodied by the spirit of one of the zodiac signs. Thus there's a silly rooster-costume guy, a monkey fighter, and the like. The action here is plentiful but very cheaply staged and the costumes are largely gaudy and rubbish-looking, factors which sap the film of its enjoyment factor even as a so-bad-it's-good picture. Lo Lieh appears in the final reel as his customary master villain, and he has the worst wig ever.
